The Emoticons of Smiley Bob is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Danielle with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, hatred of cheese, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 26.325 billion Smilers hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

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 78.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Smiley economy, worth a remarkable 4,582 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 174,083 pikas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists, therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads, and the new national mascot has to be wheeled onto the field of play. 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, and its national religion is a tie.

Smiley Bob is ranked 874th in the world and 2nd in Hollow Point for Highest Crime Rates, with 54.55 Crimes Per Hour.
