The Funhouse of Esselldee is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Esselldee with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 22.927 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.

There's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, the government has begun selling heroin and ecstasy to help fund its projects, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, and suit-clad businessmen have been taking advantage of the relaxed welfare qualifications by shopping with food stamps. 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 174th in Canada and 112,051st in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -25 on the Hayek Index.
