The Benevolent Queendom of Divine Cervine is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Arbeaone with an even hand, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, anti-smoking policies, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, cheerful population of 15.811 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 5,979 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 378,154 ¤ luminous orbs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Those who cut young children are told to cut it out, any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist, in this vegetarian nation the delicious smell of roasted meat is oddly commonplace, and children spend all morning taking out a comma and all afternoon putting it back in again. 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 277,259th in the world and 7,036th in Lazarus for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -46.86 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
