Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Barnes-Free Conglomerate of Ewing Oil Co is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by John Ross Ewing Jr with an iron fist, and remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, public floggings, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 18.778 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.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Law & Order, with Defense and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dallas. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Employee economy, worth an astonishing 13,293 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 Retail. Average income is a breathtaking 707,936 Petrodollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,343,128 per year while the poor average 88,834, a ratio of 37.6 to 1.

Ewing Oil Co's schoolchildren are manufactured into a segregated bunch of soldiers, religious zealots, and computer technicians, Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, pollution is on the rise along with government approvals of fracking projects, and nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers. 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 153,606th in the world and 152nd in Texas for Most Primitive, scoring -729.83 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
