The Benevolent Queendom of Divine Cervine is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Queen Arbeaone with an even hand, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, compulsory vegetarianism, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 15.824 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 5,984 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 378,186 ¤ luminous orbs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children spend all morning taking out a comma and all afternoon putting it back in again, politicians have seen a significant reduction in followers on their social media accounts, Divine Cervinean watches are often the only thing to survive a disaster intact, and RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 278,274th in the world and 7,050th in Lazarus for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -46.87 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
