The Allied States of Reed Audio is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by John Adams with a fair hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, smutty television, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 18.459 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, outspoken individuals juggles the competing demands of Environment, Law & Order, and Defense. Income tax is unheard of.

The enormous but sluggish Reed Audioan economy, worth a remarkable 2,681 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, Pizza Delivery, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 145,287 silvers, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 641,565 per year while the poor average 20,600, a ratio of 31.1 to 1.

Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies, ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, and jaywalkers are condemned to lives of poverty for their heinous crimes. 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 5,444th in the world and 5th in Capitalist Libertarian Freedom Region for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 7,684.8 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
