Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Emoticons of Smiley Bob is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Danielle with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.434 billion Smilers hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Avengers Tower. The average income tax rate is 78.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Smiley economy, worth a remarkable 1,412 trillion pikas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 97,830 pikas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes, abortions are routinely performed in Smiley Bob's hospitals, and anti-government web sites are springing up. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, 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 1st in Hollow Point and 3,540th in the world for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 9 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
