The Lore of Thneedtown is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Ebeziah Muji with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 13.634 billion Thneedans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zirotler. The average income tax rate is 85.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Thneed economy, worth a remarkable 1,530 trillion Gekans a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 112,237 Gekans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's no such thing as bad publicity, where there's a will there is usually a password manager, foreign football clubs wave the Thneed flag before every game, and restaurants are required to specify whether their toilet paper was made in Thneedtown. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thneedtown's national animal is the Totar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Nine Divines.

Thneedtown is ranked 3,210th in the world and 199th in The North Pacific for Best Weather, with 375 Meters Of Sunlight.
