Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Emoticons of Smiley Bob is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Danielle with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, infamous sell-swords, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, cheerful population of 17.622 billion Smilers are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Avengers Tower. The average income tax rate is 99.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Smiley economy, worth a remarkable 2,832 trillion pikas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 160,709 pikas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are frequently searched for illegal weapons, politicians and casino owners who so much as wander into the same room are arrested on the spot, a weakened police force struggles to maintain law and order, and third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive. Smiley Bob's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Smiley Bob is ranked 1,964th in the world and 1st in Hollow Point for Highest Poor Incomes, with 143,919.29 Standard Monetary Units.
