The Emoticons of Smiley Bob is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Danielle with a fair hand, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 27.537 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, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Avengers Tower. The average income tax rate is 94.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Smiley economy, worth a remarkable 5,210 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 189,231 pikas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year, the nation's democracy attracts huddled masses yearning to breathe free, and the recital of citations that follows any political speech can be longer than the speech itself. Crime is totally unknown. 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 34,741st in the world and 3rd in Hollow Point for Most Politically Free, scoring 78.95 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
