No, you don't need to sell your goods/services throughout the entire country.

Generally, the only jurisdiction where you need to prove your activity in the market is the US. And even there, you don't need to be commercially active in every state; one is sufficient.

Trademarks can also apply to brick-and-mortar stores, so you may be unable to sell your products or services nationwide.

Even if you are offering your products/services locally, your trademark will be valid nationwide.
