The Emoticons of Smiley Bob is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Danielle with a fair hand, and renowned for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, intelligent population of 13.257 billion Smilers hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Avengers Tower. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Artists are pillars of society, the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, teenagers across the country are celebrating the defeat of a national curfew bill, and wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a major problem, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Smiley Bob's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its currency is the pika.

Smiley Bob is ranked 1st in Hollow Point and 96,793rd in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.037 Stalins.
