Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Allied States of Reed Audio is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by John Adams with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, strictly enforced bedtime, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 16.276 billion Reed Audioans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded individuals juggles the competing demands of Environment, Law & Order, and Defense. Income tax is unheard of.

The strong Reed Audioan economy, worth a remarkable 4,243 trillion silvers a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Retail, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is an amazing 260,725 silvers, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,057,123 per year while the poor average 42,805, a ratio of 24.7 to 1.

Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, tantrum-throwing toddlers are regularly imprisoned on assault charges, nervous homeowners have been blamed for rising death rates amongst carol singers and locksmiths, and the nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Reed Audio's national animal is the whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Reed Audio is ranked 1st in Capitalist Libertarian Freedom Region and 94th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 30 on the Hayek Index.
