The Barnes-Free Conglomerate of Ewing Oil Co is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by John Ross Ewing Jr with an even hand, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 24.538 billion Oilers are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

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 19,906 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 811,257 Petrodollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,734,387 per year while the poor average 106,732, a ratio of 35.0 to 1.

No one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, the nation's entire cultural heritage is being auctioned off to the rich, garden stores are not allowed to sell water butts, and autopsies often involve only cursory examination. 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 9,994th in the world and 15th in Texas for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 9,135.97 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
