The Emoticons of Smiley Bob is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Danielle with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 22.882 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, although Healthcare, Environment, and Social Policy are also considered important, 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 32.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Smiley economy, worth a remarkable 3,526 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 154,102 pikas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Clowns are being rounded up and admitted to mental institutions, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads, and the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress. 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 6,082nd in the world and 2nd in Hollow Point for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 79.67 Workforce Participation Rate.
