The Allied States of Reed Audio is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by John Adams with a fair hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, ubiquitous missile silos, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 20.452 billion Reed Audioans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, liberal, pro-business, outspoken individuals juggles the competing demands of Environment, Law & Order, and Defense. Income tax is unheard of.

The enormous but underdeveloped Reed Audioan economy, worth a remarkable 3,141 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 153,607 silvers, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 820,464 per year while the poor average 15,093, a ratio of 54.4 to 1.

A typical fast food menu item could serve a small army, women wear burqas to avoid unwanted male attention, the richest citizens live in sheltered private citadels, and cassocked priests and choirboys believe that what happens behind closed doors stays behind closed doors. 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 20,376th in the world and 23rd in Capitalist Libertarian Freedom Region for Most Avoided, scoring 198.32 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
