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 suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 14.452 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 Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing industries.

Divorce is illegal, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, the poor are often seen pale and dizzy after selling their blood to make ends meet, and airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted. 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 155th in Texas and 111,274th in the world for Safest, scoring -456.6 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
