The Pride Lands is the homeworld of Simba, Nala, Timon, Pumbaa, Kiara, Kovu, Kion and the Lion Guard, Mufasa, Sarabi, Zazu, Scar, Zira, Nuka, Vitani, the Hyenas, Janja and the Outlander Hyenas, Jasiri, and the Cheetahs. The Pride Lands, despite the name, pertains to the three main parts of Africa that Simba explored during the events of The Lion King and seems to correspond with the later events in the film. The setting includes Pride Rock, which is the kingdom that Simba and Nala rule, as well as more famous movie sites such as the Jungle that Timon and Pumbaa live in, the Elephant Graveyard which the Hyenas used to live in, and the Outlands, a forbidden site where Zira and the followers of Scar were banished to before they reformed and joined the pride except for Zira. This is where the Shell Lodge Squad originated after helping Simba defeat Scar, reform Shenzi, Banzai, and Ed, and being peace between the lions and the hyenas. The entire kingdom lives in a belief of the Circle of Life, where all life is intertwined and herbivores, carnivores, and omnivores coexist with each other. Carnivores still eat meat here by hunting unless a friendship is formed, or when that friend dies. There was also a time where the hyenas were not always evil, and instead were one of the purest creatures of Africa. However, thanks to unprecedented events, they went rogue and the lions and hyenas have been fighting ever since until SpongeBob helped repair their relationships. But sadly, since the citizens of the Pride Lands viewed the hyenas badly for assisting Scar, they were all exiled back to either the Elephant Graveyard or the Outlands. So hyenas like Junja are still a problem for feeling unappreciated of the animal citizens despite making peace with the lions, and it's up to lions like Kion and his interspecies Lion Guard to keep them and several other evil animals in line.
