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 notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 14.25 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.

Private business has started paving paradises and putting up parking lots, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, the streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars, and a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army. 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 5th in Texas and 434th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 15 on the Hayek Index.
