The Emoticons of Smiley Bob is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Danielle with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 13.076 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.

Space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million pikas of property damage, children are raised bilingual from an early age, and CEOs can't hear the term 'Fire Sale' without bursting into tears. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a 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 107th in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 260 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
