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 keen interest in outer space. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 13.648 billion are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

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 Healthcare. 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.

Murder victims' families receive windfall payouts when the murderers are executed, almost half of the child population live rough on the streets, the government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, and the poor are quarantined in the inner cities to prevent criminals from entering the suburbs. Crime is a major problem. Ewing Oil Co's national animal is the Budweiser Ferret, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is the Holy Capitalism, and its currency is the Petrodollar.

Ewing Oil Co is ranked 2nd in Texas and 81st in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 35 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
