OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Barnes-Free Conglomerate of Ewing Oil Co is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by John Ross Ewing Jr with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 14.378 billion Employees are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Law & Order, and Defence. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dallas. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing industries.

Crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, citizens must pay to enjoy Ewing Oil Co's pristine beaches, the police force is on a recruitment drive, and murder victims' families receive windfall payouts when the murderers are executed. Crime is a major problem. Ewing Oil Co's national animal is the Budweiser Ferret, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is the Holy Capitalism, and its currency is the Petrodollar.

Ewing Oil Co is ranked 163rd in Texas and 111,358th in the world for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with -6,805 Net Tourists per hour.
