The Emoticons of Smiley Bob is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Danielle with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, infamous sell-swords, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 27.911 billion Smilers are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Avengers Tower. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Smiley economy, worth a remarkable 5,410 trillion pikas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 193,855 pikas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Arthritic surgeons with tremulous fingers reassure patients that they are in safe hands, tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, the government tells its citizens to 'forgive and forget', and people accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Smiley Bob's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is a tie.

Smiley Bob is ranked 239,896th in the world and 9th in Hollow Point for Rudest Citizens, with 6.15 Insults Per Minute.
