Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Emoticons of Smiley Bob is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Danielle with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.502 billion Smilers enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Avengers Tower. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Smiley economy, worth a remarkable 1,803 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 a slick, highly efficient, 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 an impressive 116,356 pikas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

National parks have long lines of different gender-specific 'Porta-Pottys', hunters have been known to lose limbs while attempting to 'play tag' with their prey, sex offenders find themselves cut off from the ability to repeat their crimes, and the Smiley Bob Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon'. 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 56th in the world for Most Pacifist, scoring 5,355 on the Lennon-Springsteen Scale.
