The Emoticons of Smiley Bob is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Nicholas with an even hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, parental licensing program, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 18.259 billion Smilers have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Avengers Tower. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Smiley economy, worth a remarkable 2,697 trillion pikas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 147,716 pikas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, breast milk lattes are the newest fad among hip urbanites, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, and invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive. Smiley Bob's national animal is the ghost dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Smiley Bob is ranked 180,067th in the world and 14th in Hollow Point for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 15.12 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
