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 notable for its suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 14.733 billion Employees 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 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.

New urban roads are threatening city parks, the children of Ewing Oil Co are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, seafood restaurants assure customers 'If it lives in the sea, it's on our menu', and fearful citizens watch their every move as does their government. Crime is a 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 22nd in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 1,210 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
