The Emoticons of Smiley Bob is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Danielle with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 27.752 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 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Smiley economy, worth a remarkable 5,333 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 192,190 pikas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Danielle always arrives fashionably late and smelling of mushrooms, kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents, Danielle is considering changing the nation's name to Blackacre, and animal control is going door-to-door releasing all pets back into the wild. 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 46,942nd in the world and 5th in Hollow Point for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 221,809 Standard Monetary Units.
