The Emoticons of Smiley Bob is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Danielle with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful population of 23.075 billion Smilers have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Avengers Tower. The average income tax rate is 42.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Smiley economy, worth a remarkable 3,615 trillion pikas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. 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 156,693 pikas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Solving crossword puzzles requires fluency in at least five languages, the Smiley Bob Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, advert breaks are played at lower volumes to make them easier to ignore, and old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-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.

Smiley Bob is ranked 55,429th in the world and 5th in Hollow Point for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,002.48 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
