OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Barnes-Free Conglomerate of Ewing Oil Co is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by John Ross Ewing Jr with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. Its hard-nosed, hard-working population of 13.672 billion are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

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 Healthcare. 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 adult unemployment rate nears 100% as all available jobs have been filled by young children, cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, and only a minority of the population can actually vote at elections. 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 1st in Texas and 52nd in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 34 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
