The Lore of Thneedtown is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ebeziah Muji with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, anti-smoking policies, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 8.845 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 Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zirotler. The average income tax rate is 76.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Thneed economy, worth 938 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 reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 106,081 Gekans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Libraries have replaced overdue book fines with mandatory mental health assessments, community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, garishly-decorated government buildings are being hailed as the height of 'religious nouveau', and disaster relief budgets are growing like wildfire. 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 33,306th in the world and 1,667th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,709.31 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
