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 frequent executions, enslaved workforce, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 24.197 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 Law & Order, Industry, 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 19,506 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 806,151 Petrodollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,420,615 per year while the poor average 74,866, a ratio of 59.0 to 1.

Streaming video is considered to be a myth by most citizens, streakers swamp all public events in order to bare it all, dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, and the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields. 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 172,500th in the world and 195th in Texas for Highest Average Tax Rates, with -33.62 Effective Tax Rate.
