The Strategic Petroleum Reserve of East Texas Oil Field is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by just a puppet with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, smutty television, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 21.878 billion East Texas Oil Fieldians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kilgore. The average income tax rate is 3.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient East Texas Oil Fieldian economy, worth a remarkable 3,835 trillion oil barrels a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 175,301 oil barrels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The colors pink and purple are banned from military unit insignia, coyotes with strange deformities like three eyes and tentacles have been seen prancing through the countryside where industrial waste is dumped, postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation, and politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. East Texas Oil Field's national animal is the coyote, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is the Petrolism.

East Texas Oil Field is ranked 203,525th in the world and 189th in Texas for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -24.7 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
