The Blues Guitar of Stevie Ray is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 26.593 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, with Healthcare, Spirituality, and Education also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 77.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Stevie Rayian economy, worth 490 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 18,457 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 94,672nd in the world and 387th in NationStates for Longest Average Lifespans, with 61.48 Years.
