The Lore of Thneedtown
“Thou Shalt Go Forth And Fornicate With Thyself”
|Category: Liberal Democratic Socialists|
Location: The North Pacific
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Lore of Thneedtown is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ebeziah Muji with a fair hand, and renowned for its public floggings, pith helmet sales, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 11.05 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, outspoken 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 80.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Thneed economy, worth a remarkable 1,247 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 112,935 Gekans, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Jennifer Government is a bestseller, old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones, at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Ebeziah Muji's wardrobe, and would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here". 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.
