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 complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 15.11 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.

The government has undertaken a massive education and health program to combat VODAIS, the breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in Ewing Oil Co, Ewing Oil Co's leader goes out to lunch surrounded by large men in dark glasses, and the government has ordered a moratorium on referenda. Crime is moderate. 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 191st in Texas and 117,627th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -1,344 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
