The Emoticons of Smiley Bob is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Danielle with a fair hand, and remarkable for its strong anti-business policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 13.458 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.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, socially-minded individuals juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Avengers Tower. Income tax is unheard of. 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.

Violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, child labor has been outlawed, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, and hospitals are amongst the best-funded in the region. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles 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, and its currency is the pika.

Smiley Bob is ranked 2nd in Hollow Point and 71,260th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 9 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
