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 infamous sell-swords, enslaved workforce, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 35.179 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 tiny, corrupt, pro-business government 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 33,646 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 Woodchip Exports. Average income is a breathtaking 956,433 Petrodollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,248,575 per year while the poor average 57,734, a ratio of 108 to 1.

Decaying farm hamlets have twice the representation of major urban areas, Oiler soldiers know how to create single mothers in more ways than one, EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, and serial killers who are released early distribute death but not their seed. 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 61st in the world and 1st in Texas for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 54,419.77 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
