OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Barnes-Free Conglomerate of Ewing Oil Co is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by John Ross Ewing Jr with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, zero percent divorce rate, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 15.337 billion Employees are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dallas. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Employee economy, worth a remarkable 9,633 trillion Petrodollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 628,131 Petrodollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,187,903 per year while the poor average 15,625, a ratio of 332 to 1.

Only a minority of the population can actually vote at elections, the government is spending millions on 'trust campaigns' in an effort to win back the public's support, billions of Petrodollars are being blown on orbital weapons development, and the government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Ewing Oil Co's national animal is the Budweiser Ferret, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Holy Capitalism.

Ewing Oil Co is ranked 161st in Texas and 114,599th in the world for Most Devout, scoring -358 on the Paradise-Perdition Likelihood Rating.
