The Barnes-Free Conglomerate of Ewing Oil Co is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by John Ross Ewing Jr with an iron fist, and notable for its flagrant waste-dumping, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 28.862 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, 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 25,852 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 895,737 Petrodollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,968,891 per year while the poor average 81,106, a ratio of 61.3 to 1.

Urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines, scientific progress marches ever forward with the first ever launch of a cheeseburger into space, battlefield gains are quickly lost when enemies don't respect a time-out, and the Great Oiler Desert is reputedly the most uninhabitable place in the region. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. 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 70th in the world and 1st in Texas for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 61,428.03 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
