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, deadly medical pandemics, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 22.374 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 17,312 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 773,778 Petrodollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,514,456 per year while the poor average 62,449, a ratio of 72.3 to 1.

All telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', military spending is on the increase, no animal is considered endangered if there's another that looks kind of like it, and the nation's once beautiful countryside has turned brown as farmers spray potent pesticides. 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 6,154th in the world and 7th in Texas for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 15 Valid Endorsements.
