Regional Influence: Instigator
The Funhouse of Esselldee is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Esselldee with a fair hand, and notable for its hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 22.72 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.
Fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Esselldee City Times is sold out, birth rates have hit an all-time low, and radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion. 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.
