The Emoticons of Smiley Bob is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Danielle with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and aversion to nipples. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 27.771 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 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Smiley economy, worth a remarkable 5,341 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 192,353 pikas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Future forecasters fearfully discuss grey goo and human obsolescence, pretending to be prejudiced is a good way to get out of jury duty, political hopefuls must announce their intentions decades in advance to accommodate extensive background checks, and Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume. 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 34th in the world and 1st in Hollow Point for Best Weather, with 2,580 Meters Of Sunlight.
