The Benevolent Queendom of Divine Cervine is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Queen Arbeaone with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, compulsory vegetarianism, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 12.904 billion Divine Deerlings are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Enchanted Wildwood. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Divine Cervinean economy, worth a remarkable 4,414 trillion ¤ luminous orbs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 342,115 ¤ luminous orbs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Travelers are subject to extensive searches if beet stains are visible on their clothing, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, all the playground's a stage for Divine Cervinean schoolchildren, and noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Divine Cervine's national animal is the iridescent-winged purple peryton, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Divine Cervine is ranked 2,555th in the world and 119th in Lazarus for Highest Economic Output, with 4,414 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
