Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Lore of Thneedtown is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ebeziah Muji with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, anti-smoking policies, and frequent executions. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.147 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 74.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Thneed economy, worth 867 trillion Gekans a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 106,466 Gekans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, fruit pickers with degrees in Totar psychology are a common sight, board shorts have replaced board rooms, and having skeletons in one's closet is no longer just a macabre idiom. 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 146,804th in the world and 7,337th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -19.18 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
