Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Emoticons of Smiley Bob is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Danielle with a fair hand, and renowned for its restrictive gun laws, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 19.096 billion Smilers enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Avengers Tower. The average income tax rate is 4.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Smiley economy, worth a remarkable 2,728 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 142,864 pikas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, citizens cannot change their light bulbs without approval from an international committee, the right to free speech is being drastically curtailed, and bureaucrats close new businesses for not complying with the Penguin Packaging Index. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Smiley Bob's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Smiley Bob is ranked 24,326th in the world and 3rd in Hollow Point for Largest Black Market, with 4.85 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
