The Funhouse of Esselldee is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Esselldee with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 22.932 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.

The government has begun selling heroin and ecstasy to help fund its projects, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, suit-clad businessmen have been taking advantage of the relaxed welfare qualifications by shopping with food stamps, and new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Esselldee to be bombproof. 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 4th in Canada and 342nd in the world for Best Weather, with 776 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
