The Emoticons of Smiley Bob is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Danielle with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. Its compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 12.535 billion 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 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.

Inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, the dragon is a protected species, pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government, and Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a problem, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Smiley Bob's national animal is the dragon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the pika.

Smiley Bob is ranked 5th in Hollow Point and 122,664th in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -31 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
