The Emoticons of Smiley Bob is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Danielle with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, national health service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 26.099 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 87.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Smiley economy, worth a remarkable 4,674 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 179,120 pikas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign policy is to avoid standing up to bullies, one of the nation's leading exports is empty platitudes, the realistic depiction of tentacles is on the core syllabus of most art schools, and motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours. 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 208,809th in the world and 10th in Hollow Point for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -79.96 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
