Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Lore of Thneedtown is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Ebeziah Muji with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 8.518 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zirotler. The average income tax rate is 75.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Thneed economy, worth 908 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 106,647 Gekans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Foreign Ministry thinks an eye for an eye is a blindingly good idea, libraries have replaced overdue book fines with mandatory mental health assessments, community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, and garishly-decorated government buildings are being hailed as the height of 'religious nouveau'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 160,168th in the world and 8,643rd in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -13.64 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
