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 rum-swilling pirates, ban on automobiles, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.788 billion Smilers enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Avengers Tower. The average income tax rate is 84.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Smiley economy, worth a remarkable 1,568 trillion pikas a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 106,059 pikas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, returning tourists and businessmen are detained without trial if they belong to the "wrong" religion, and consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Smiley Bob's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Smiley Bob is ranked 1st in Hollow Point and 115th in the world for Happiest Citizens, scoring 18 on the Relative Cheerfulness Rating.
