The Emoticons of Smiley Bob is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Danielle with a fair hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 28.409 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 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Smiley economy, worth a remarkable 5,641 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 198,570 pikas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Horns and hypocrisy are the newest exports of Smiley Bob, brain injury is seen as a desirable outcome rather than a side effect of contact sports, the nation is reliant on the principle of mutually assured destruction to maintain its security, and the new biography of Danielle is subtitled "How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Hate the Bomb". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 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 214,651st in the world and 10th in Hollow Point for Most Corrupt Governments, with 0.29 kickbacks per hour.
