The Allied States of Reed Audio is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by John Adams with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent medical pandemics, smutty television, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 15.569 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, pro-business, outspoken individuals juggles the competing demands of Environment, Law & Order, and Defense. Income tax is unheard of.

The strong Reed Audioan economy, worth a remarkable 4,033 trillion silvers a year, is driven entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Retail, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 259,092 silvers, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,203,702 per year while the poor average 33,514, a ratio of 35.9 to 1.

Thousands of former welfare recipients are in a revolutionary uproar as the rest of society is enjoying a hefty tax break, meat-eating is frowned upon, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, and theoretical science is only theoretical. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, 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 3rd in Capitalist Libertarian Freedom Region and 1,017th in the world for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 12 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
