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 public floggings, enslaved workforce, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 28.02 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 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 24,730 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 882,590 Petrodollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 7,012,507 per year while the poor average 26,638, a ratio of 263 to 1.

A stocking with a crooked seam or a tie without a full Windsor knot are grounds for instant dismissal, a firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away, nose plugs are the latest Oiler fashion accessory, and wood-framed catapults are ready to launch diseased corpses into besieged cities. 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 231,078th in the world and 197th in Texas for Safest, scoring 1.9 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
