Reed Audio

Population22.061 billion

LeaderJohn Adams


The Allied States of Reed Audio is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by John Adams with a fair hand, and renowned for its public floggings, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 22.061 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, pro-business, outspoken individuals juggles the competing demands of Environment, Law & Order, and Defense. Income tax is unheard of.

The large but stagnant Reed Audioan economy, worth 537 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 24,347 silvers, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 122,699 per year while the poor average 2,695, a ratio of 45.5 to 1.

A five-year-old and a convicted terrorist can sit alongside one another in jury service, politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, most silver coins are riddled with bite marks, and prominent cultural symbols are featured on the backs of cereal boxes. 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 69,690th in the world and 30th in Capitalist Libertarian Freedom Region for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 1,272.59 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
