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, unlimited-speed roads, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 28.04 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 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 24,753 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 882,803 Petrodollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 7,098,504 per year while the poor average 25,181, a ratio of 281 to 1.

Heterosexuality is considered positive proof of fitness to parent, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, Ewing Oil Co's Medieval Faire is renowned as one of the best in the region, and the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks". 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 264th in the world and 2nd in Texas for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 101,371.61 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
