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 barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 22.716 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 17,738 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 780,898 Petrodollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,213,073 per year while the poor average 75,111, a ratio of 56.1 to 1.

Even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious, formerly fertile fields are being leached dry of nutrients by intensive farming, Oilers caught jaywalking often have their houses seized by the police, and John Ross Ewing Jr's Twitcher account is typically used to share Budweiser Ferret memes rather than government policy. 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 168,793rd in the world and 159th in Texas for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.52 Crimes Per Hour.
