The Funhouse of Esselldee is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Esselldee with a fair hand, and remarkable for its strong anti-business policies. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 22.969 billion, 4.809 billion of whom are zombies, 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 started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, invading armies are given hard glares for their cheek, soylent products are an expensive commodity due to a lack of volunteers, and schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes. 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 13th in Canada and 1,984th in the world for Most Dedicated Public Healthcare, scoring 184 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.

Esselldee is currently researching a cure.
