The Benevolent Queendom of Divine Cervine is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Queen Arbeaone with an even hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 11.653 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 3,806 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 326,614 ¤ luminous orbs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, Queen Arbeaone's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, homophobia is off the menu, and excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside. 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 62,945th in the world and 2,230th in Lazarus for Nudest, with 170.25 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
