The Barnes-Free Conglomerate of Ewing Oil Co is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by John Ross Ewing Jr with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 28.578 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, well-organized 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 25,470 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 891,275 Petrodollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,816,340 per year while the poor average 85,432, a ratio of 56.4 to 1.

Adults pretending to be teenage girls claim to have wholesome motives, heartwarming sentiments are even hotter now, the youth vote is only counted when kindergarten teachers ask who drew the best picture, and parents must decide between buying food and taking their children to the park. 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 2,047th in the world and 18th in Texas for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 257.27 Bank.
