The Emoticons of Smiley Bob is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Danielle with a fair hand, and notable for its happy-go-lucky citizens. Its compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 12.512 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.

Unemployment rates have skyrocketed as businesses abandon the country in search of cheap labour, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, the government is spending millions on alternative clean-burning fuels, and legislation sometimes has to battle through weeks of filibustering to pass. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a serious 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 122,683rd in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -34 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
