The Barnes-Free Conglomerate of Ewing Oil Co is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by John Ross Ewing Jr with an iron fist, and renowned for its flagrant waste-dumping, otherworldly petting zoo, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 28.584 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, 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 25,479 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 891,382 Petrodollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,793,690 per year while the poor average 86,329, a ratio of 55.5 to 1.

The local custom of Biking With The Cars sends tourists home bemused or in body-bags, the "Dreadnowt" is the pride and joy of the Oiler Navy, getting your license is a rite of passage for young adults, and anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card. 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 6,489th in the world and 18th in Texas for Largest Black Market, with 254 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
