The Allied States of Reed Audio is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by John Adams with a fair hand, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 15.144 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 the Environment, Law & Order, and Defence. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Soda Sales industry.

Eminent domain has been abolished, manual labourers must be willing to have cybernetic limbs to get a job, the military frequently holds bake sales to raise funds, and Reed Audio is building an army to protect its overseas territories. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. Reed Audio's national animal is the whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its currency is the silver.

Reed Audio is ranked 1st in Capitalist Libertarian Freedom Region and 1,670th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring 57 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
