The Orange Juice Republic of Asark is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by a well-dressed raccoon with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.186 billion Sarks hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Acorn City. The average income tax rate is 94.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Asarkian economy, worth 434 trillion acorns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 136,475 acorns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles, the government is hoping that medical aid will speak louder than human rights abuses, and the Asark Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Asark's national animal is the golden tortoise beetle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Asark is ranked 57,569th in the world and 1,514th in The East Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 91.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
