The Barnes-Free Conglomerate of Ewing Oil Co is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by John Ross Ewing Jr with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, smutty television, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 31.3 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, 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 29,184 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 Retail, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 932,398 Petrodollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 7,408,245 per year while the poor average 28,142, a ratio of 263 to 1.

Exploding toys that leak battery acid are back in the shops after the government declared child safety 'over-rated', politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back, the nation's soldiers are considered the best-dressed in Texas, and kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll. 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 10,288th in the world and 11th in Texas for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 8 valid endorsements.
