The Blues Guitar of Stevie Ray is a gargantuan, devout nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic population of 21.671 billion Stevie Rayians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken morass — prioritizes Welfare, although Education, Spirituality, and Healthcare are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 78.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Stevie Rayian economy, worth 399 trillion Blueses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is 18,422 Blueses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", and refugees from other nations are flocking to Stevie Ray's border. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stevie Ray's national animal is the Austinite, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Stevie Ray is ranked 222nd in NationStates and 75,055th in the world for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 0 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
