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 remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 14.211 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.

Laws are littered with references to cheese, movies and computer games are strictly censored for violence, military spending is on the increase, and mobile phone masts are being erected all over the country. 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 164th in Texas and 112,099th in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring -83 on the Enoch Index.
