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 daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 23.083 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, 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 18,190 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 788,047 Petrodollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,151,828 per year while the poor average 47,483, a ratio of 108 to 1.

Supermarket milk is a shear-thickening fluid that can stop small-caliber bullets, the nation's biggest export is stupidity, invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, and theft is considered to be okay if the crime happened a long time ago. 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 68th in the world and 2nd in Texas for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 55,014.52 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
