The Funhouse of Esselldee is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Esselldee with a fair hand, and remarkable for its hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 23.131 billion Esselldeeans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Education, and Public Transport. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Esselldee City. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, the Esselldee Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, businesses are forced to bring all work back within the nation's borders, and the mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Esselldee's national animal is the nauga, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the dineroo.

Esselldee is ranked 173rd in Canada and 121,555th in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -19 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
