The Emoticons of Smiley Bob is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Danielle with a fair hand, and notable for its strong anti-business policies. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 13.121 billion Smilers 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.

Anti-government web sites are springing up, military funding has been stripped back, calling out of the blue has become taboo, and young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables. 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 soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its currency is the pika.

Smiley Bob is ranked 1st in Hollow Point and 22nd in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 645 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
