The Benevolent Queendom of Divine Cervine is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Arbeaone with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, prohibition of alcohol, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 12.881 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 4,402 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 341,811 ¤ luminous orbs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, student athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned iridescent-winged purple perytonball fields, therapists can always squeeze in another house-call, and organ donation is compulsory. 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 245,712th in the world and 8,485th in Lazarus for Most Armed, with 0.05 Weapons Per Person.
