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 14.93 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.

Almost half of the child population live rough on the streets, membership in the state-owned Church of Ewing Oil Co is mandatory and all other faith organisations are banned, newspapers cannot report anything about politicians without their explicit consent, and citizens are frequently held up at gunpoint by their local pizza delivery boys. 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 168th in Texas and 120,664th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -1,316 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
