The Emoticons of Smiley Bob is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Danielle with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, digital currency, and strictly enforced bedtime. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 26.124 billion Smilers enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Avngrs Towr. The average income tax rate is 87.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Smiley economy, worth a remarkable 4,690 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 179,535 pikas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, children are raised bilingual from an early age, and the Smiley Bob Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon'. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem. Smiley Bob's national animal is the cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is a tie.

Smiley Bob is ranked 170,574th in the world and 8th in Hollow Point for Most Pro-Market, scoring -65.78 on the Rand Index.
