The Emoticons of Smiley Bob is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Danielle with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, smutty television, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful population of 23.433 billion Smilers have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, 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 44.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Smiley economy, worth a remarkable 3,685 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 157,289 pikas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Bike rage is all the rage, the family of Danielle bite their thumbs at paparazzi intrusions, terrorist attacks are mostly met with shrugs of resignation, and for 25 pikas tourists can gawk at the site of national tragedy. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Smiley Bob's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Smiley Bob is ranked 488th in the world and 1st in Hollow Point for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 14,611.84 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
