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 complete lack of prisons, smutty television, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 29.006 billion Oilers are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

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 26,039 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 897,739 Petrodollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 7,016,213 per year while the poor average 29,180, a ratio of 240 to 1.

Exports are stamped with "made by the invisible hand you commies", it's said that an Oiler always pays his debts with significant compounding, frustrated teenage boys are told that if they like it then they should have put a ring on it, and Oiler farm salmon are known for being both horribly diseased and remarkably acrobatic. 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 26th in the world and 1st in Texas for Rudest Citizens, with 1,352.04 Insults Per Minute.
