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 devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 9.281 billion Thneedans 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.

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 77.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Thneed economy, worth 993 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 107,067 Gekans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Garishly-decorated government buildings are being hailed as the height of 'religious nouveau', disaster relief budgets are growing like wildfire, nothing gets the party jumping like Ebeziah Muji specifying how high, and excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside. 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 175,555th in the world and 9,465th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -15.78 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
