The Barnes-Free Conglomerate of Ewing Oil Co is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by John Ross Ewing Jr with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 35.667 billion Oilers are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, 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 34,303 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 Woodchip Exports. Average income is a breathtaking 961,778 Petrodollars, with the richest citizens earning 8.2 times as much as the poorest.

Children are regularly married to each other to secure alliances between families, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, meals are now followed by thirty minutes of mandatory exercise, and fiscal policy hawks decry the sizable "panem et circenses" fund added to the public budget. 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 327th in the world and 2nd in Texas for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 1,329.74 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
