The Allied States of Reed Audio is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by John Adams with a fair hand, and renowned for its suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 14.753 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.

Farmers are struggling to keep up with demand for local produce, X-Files ratings have hit an all-time low, emigration to countries with labor laws is all the rage, and violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner. 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 4th in Capitalist Libertarian Freedom Region and 4,785th in the world for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, scoring 181 on the Inverse Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
