The Allied States of Reed Audio is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by John Adams with a fair hand, and notable for its suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 14.424 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 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.

College students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs, and sex offenders find themselves cut off from the ability to repeat their crimes. 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 22nd in Capitalist Libertarian Freedom Region and 110,184th in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring -37 on the Enoch Index.
