The Benevolent Queendom of Divine Cervine is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Arbeaone with an even hand, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 11.402 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 3,683 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 323,088 ¤ luminous orbs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rare art has become a significant factor in negotiating all foreign trade agreements, iridescent-winged purple perytons have more rights than the average citizen, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, and posters on 'Divine Cervinean Values' advise against being proud of Divine Cervine. 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 207,815th in the world and 7,797th in Lazarus for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -44.83 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
