The Emoticons of Smiley Bob is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Danielle with a fair hand, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, irreverence towards religion, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 26.759 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 relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Avngrs Towr. The average income tax rate is 89.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Smiley economy, worth a remarkable 4,840 trillion pikas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 180,885 pikas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People can get away with murder these days, young girls and senior citizens alike can be spotted wearing colourful short shorts, sales of pregnancy testing kits are booming, and doctors fax when they need facts fast. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Smiley Bob's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is a tie.

Smiley Bob is ranked 220,835th in the world and 8th in Hollow Point for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring -51.77 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
