The Barnes-Free Conglomerate of Ewing Oil Co is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by John Ross Ewing Jr with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, avowedly heterosexual populace, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 26.227 billion Oilers are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

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 22,378 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 853,268 Petrodollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,245,476 per year while the poor average 35,941, a ratio of 173 to 1.

Toddler groups have taken over local libraries, euthanasia is legal, Ollie the Oiled Seal welcomes throngs of tourists to the newly opened Oil Oasis Water Park, and teenage girls worry that they'll be unpopular if their skirts aren't short enough. 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 82nd in the world and 1st in Texas for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 59,199.49 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
