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 renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, pith helmet sales, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 19.644 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, is primarily concerned with Law & Order, with Defense and Industry 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 14,449 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 Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is a breathtaking 735,558 Petrodollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,677,947 per year while the poor average 25,209, a ratio of 225 to 1.

Rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, the suicide rate mysteriously skyrockets during census years, voting is voluntary, and torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals. 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 440th in the world and 6th in Texas for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 60,336.51 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
