The Emoticons of Smiley Bob is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Danielle with a fair hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles. The compassionate, intelligent population of 13.638 billion Smilers hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded individuals juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Social Equality. 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.

The arms industry has been shut down in a surge of pacifism, disaster victims are viewed with disdain, procrastination is a national sport, and new funding allows inner city teachers to replace school laptops almost as fast as they get stolen. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, 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 577th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 13 on the Hayek Index.
