The Benevolent Queendom of Divine Cervine is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Queen Arbeaone with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 13.534 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 4,742 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 350,428 ¤ luminous orbs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Almost all of the nation's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, undersea volcanoes receive strongly worded letters for violating environmental regulations, police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, and children are disappointed to learn that cavemen never had a yabba-dabba-doo time riding dinosaurs to work. 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 216,141st in the world and 7,890th in Lazarus for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring -68.92 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
