The Benevolent Queendom of Divine Cervine is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Arbeaone with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, cheerful population of 15.535 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 5,816 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 374,440 ¤ luminous orbs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned significant others, the police are tightening their grip on alcohol smugglers, the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, and orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents. 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 6th in the world and 1st in Lazarus for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 35,699.7 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
