The Barnes-Free Conglomerate of Ewing Oil Co is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by John Ross Ewing Jr with an iron fist, and remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, pith helmet sales, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 27.845 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, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Defense. 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 24,491 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 Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 879,569 Petrodollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,732,629 per year while the poor average 31,215, a ratio of 215 to 1.

Schoolchildren learn an R-rated version of "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes", any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, inheritance tax has recently been abolished, and the government raises tariffs on a weekly basis. 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 229,382nd in the world and 197th in Texas for Least Corrupt Governments, with 0.38 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
