Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Emoticons of Smiley Bob is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Danielle with a fair hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.279 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Avengers Tower. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Smiley economy, worth a remarkable 1,802 trillion pikas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, extremely specialized black market in Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 117,977 pikas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Smiley Bob Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, and the government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Smiley Bob's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Smiley Bob is ranked 4th in Hollow Point and 119,981st in the world for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -17 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
