Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

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 zero percent divorce rate, frequent executions, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 20.212 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, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Law & Order, with Defense and Industry also on the agenda, 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 15,184 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 Information Technology, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 751,259 Petrodollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,365,756 per year while the poor average 34,469, a ratio of 155 to 1.

Farmers are struggling to keep up with demand for local produce, cars speed down national highways while drivers sleep at the wheel, crocodile roadkill is smeared across the asphalt of the new Formula One track, and a girl's success in life is often linked to her performance in beauty pageants. 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 3,003rd in the world and 13th in Texas for Largest Black Market, with 151 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
