Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Emoticons of Smiley Bob is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Danielle with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.45 billion Smilers are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — 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 99.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Smiley economy, worth a remarkable 2,161 trillion pikas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is an impressive 131,394 pikas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, referenda are held for every conceivable government action, religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, and the government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Smiley Bob's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Smiley Bob is ranked 2nd in Hollow Point and 143,498th in the world for Lowest Crime Rates, scoring -468.173 on the Relative Freedom From Crime Index.
