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 aversion to nipples, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 27.236 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 23,715 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 870,748 Petrodollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,387,398 per year while the poor average 36,389, a ratio of 175 to 1.

Celebrity foodies are biting a huge chunk out of the government budget, the only place where one can see the Oiler cherry tree is in a museum, school children are forced to sing the national anthem every morning, and you need two tenors and a coloratura contralto to sing the national anthem properly. 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 21st in the world and 1st in Texas for Highest Average Incomes, with 870,748.54 Standard Monetary Units.
