Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Emoticons of Smiley Bob is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Danielle with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, ban on automobiles, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.577 billion Smilers are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Avengers Tower. The average income tax rate is 78.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Smiley economy, worth a remarkable 1,445 trillion pikas a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 99,164 pikas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Companies struggle to cover for the hordes of employees on parental leave, Danielle's mistress is the belle at many state balls, children are raised bilingual from an early age, and Avengers Tower spends billions upgrading public transport. 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 100th in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 278 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
