The Extraordinary Blues Guitar of Stevie Ray is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Guitar Hero with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, avowedly heterosexual populace, and smutty television. The compassionate, cynical population of 35.308 billion Stevie Rayians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Austin City Limits. The average income tax rate is 74.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Stevie Rayian economy, worth a remarkable 7,716 trillion Blueses a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 218,539 Blueses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

The military patrols the streets in search of possible secessionists, the military has grudgingly released all top secret information in an effort for greater transparency, political activists are routinely executed, and politicians are battling inequality by declaring themselves better than everyone else. 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 184,151st in the world and 342nd in NationStates for Most Extreme, scoring 10.72 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
