[[WMG: The world is a artificial Utopia populated by genetically engineered people]]
This would explain why the technology and history is the same as our world. It was made by people who could lie, and given to the honest people by the creators of the utopia.

Suddenly saying things that did not reflect reality? A sure sign of madness, second only to talking to yourself while [[SweeneyTodd cooking your customers into pies]]. Unfortunately, this [[BuffySpeak talking-about-not-realness]] affected others, convincing them that it was not only made sense but also was a good idea.

[[WMG:The world of TheInventionOfLying is the homeworld of the Thermians from Film/GalaxyQuest.]]
The Thermian culture developed without the concept of the lie. Sure, the Thermians were blobby squid-things, but would anyone have been able to follow the movie if everyone in TheInventionOfLying was a blobby squid-thing?

** Yes, Hitler lied plenty. The Nazis even thought up the concept of the Big Lie-you should always lie the most fantastically possible, for most won't believe that you'd make something up that's so grandious.

The ability to lie is a freewill concept where the person choose to either tell the truth totally, partly or not at all. A god-like being for whatever reason decided to remove the ability to lie while allowing them free choice in every other respect and this world is the result.

Think about it, all works of fiction are gone, eliminated because their stories were made up and/or contradicted one another. Over the course of the years people would give increasing credit only to what they could immediately see, hear, sense, all in the name of Reality. Books might be kept around as records of facts, but for no other reason; hence only reference books were spared in the Firemen's destruction of all libraries. In time, people might regard saying "a thing that is not", ie, lying, as a serious mental disorder and start inoculating children against it, as you would against smallpox.
