The Lore of Thneedtown is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Ebeziah Muji with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 13.401 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, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zirotler. The average income tax rate is 84.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Thneed economy, worth a remarkable 1,513 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 112,949 Gekans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One does not simply walk into the tundra, soldiers' positions are given away by the glint of their bayonets, there's no such thing as bad publicity, and where there's a will there is usually a password manager. 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 8,492nd in the world and 357th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 3,540.98 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
