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, daily referendums, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 16.667 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 4,379 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 Pizza Delivery. Average income is an amazing 262,734 silvers, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,301,996 per year while the poor average 30,064, a ratio of 43.3 to 1.

Bleach is the nation's most common pesticide, fraternities are notorious for drunken hooliganism, ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, and businesses often fire workers in favour of cheaper automatic systems. 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 26th in Capitalist Libertarian Freedom Region and 118,943rd in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring -434 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
