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 iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, complete lack of prisons, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 21.104 billion Oilers are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Law & Order, with Industry and Defense also on the agenda, 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 15,735 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 745,608 Petrodollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,827,212 per year while the poor average 46,162, a ratio of 104 to 1.

Drunk drivers are sentenced to death, cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, the government nonchalantly sells old nukes to other countries, and people often get liposuction to reduce their air fares. 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 169,195th in the world and 141st in Texas for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -30 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
