The Benevolent Queendom of Divine Cervine is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Queen Arbeaone with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, lack of airports, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, cheerful population of 9.259 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 2,706 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 extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 292,277 luminous orbs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Divine Cervinean housewives become unusually flustered when thinking about Queen Arbeaone, almost all of the nation's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, women have a strange proclivity for dressing up as caped weasels, and terrorists are on a first name basis with the officials that stamp their passports. 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 purple fairy deer, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Divine Cervine is ranked 13th in the world and 1st in Lazarus for Most Developed, scoring 99.97 on the Human Development Index.
