The Barnes-Free Conglomerate of Ewing Oil Co is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by John Ross Ewing Jr with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, unlimited-speed roads, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 29.24 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, 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 26,360 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 901,515 Petrodollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,513,106 per year while the poor average 39,768, a ratio of 163 to 1.

One does not simply walk into the tundra, the end of autumn is celebrated with a bonfire of designer bags, large areas of Ewing Oil Co are not accessible by the public, and self-driving cars occasionally mow down pedestrians to avoid inconveniencing passengers. 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 676th in the world and 3rd in Texas for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 40,467.04 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
