The Allied States of Reed Audio is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by John Adams with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, complete lack of public education, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 20.999 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 510 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 24,303 silvers, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 132,187 per year while the poor average 2,297, a ratio of 57.5 to 1.

Reed Audio's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, pro-life activists often lecture pregnant women undergoing routine prenatal screening, and sexuality-questioning teenagers are placed in locked rooms with dirty magazines and lewd posters. 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 150,226th in the world and 40th in Capitalist Libertarian Freedom Region for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 9.17 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
