Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

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 compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 21.457 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, prioritizes Law & Order, although Industry and Defense are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy aren't funded at all. 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 16,198 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 754,922 Petrodollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,570,325 per year while the poor average 30,881, a ratio of 180 to 1.

The government denies that it has an agency overseeing plausible deniability of black-ops agencies, the government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association, the nation has always been at war with Bigtopia, and game show contestants scramble to fish trash out of the South Budweiser Ferret Sea. 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 3,293rd in the world and 10th in Texas for Largest Black Market, with 161 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
