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 14.953 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 cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation, voters must frequently select what they view as the lesser of two evils on the ballot, and popular websites like NationStates are blocked for "national security". 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 1st in Texas and 41st in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 33 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
