The Barnes-Free Conglomerate of Ewing Oil Co is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by John Ross Ewing Jr with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, otherworldly petting zoo, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 23.48 billion Oilers are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

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 18,640 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 793,867 Petrodollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,552,265 per year while the poor average 66,704, a ratio of 68.2 to 1.

The arms industry is backed by government subsidies and harsh anti-protest laws are in place, takeaway food bought on the weekend now comes with fifty percent more sweat and tears, international war crimes are good for business and business is booming, and a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up. 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 19th in the world and 1st in Texas for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 4.55 million Standard Monetary Units.
