Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Barnes-Free Conglomerate of Ewing Oil Co is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by John Ross Ewing Jr with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, infamous sell-swords, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 20.748 billion Oilers are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Law & Order, although Industry and Defense are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dallas. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Oiler economy, worth an astonishing 15,239 trillion Petrodollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Average income is a breathtaking 734,514 Petrodollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,694,813 per year while the poor average 47,099, a ratio of 99.7 to 1.

Most academic research has ground to a halt, tourists flock to see the giant stone carvings of Ewing Oil Co's historical leaders at Mount Rushless, morning coffees are no longer the same since the disappearance of newspapers, and all judiciary cases are decided in the court of public opinion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Ewing Oil Co's national animal is the Budweiser Ferret, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Holy Capitalism.

Ewing Oil Co is ranked 150,955th in the world and 147th in Texas for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 6.18 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
