The Benevolent Queendom of Divine Cervine is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Arbeaone with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cheerful population of 13.511 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 4,732 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 350,260 ¤ luminous orbs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

High school boys are required to pass vigorous self-mastery and sensitivity training to graduate, the experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Iridescent-winged Purple Peryton Dung" has been declared a national treasure, all the playground's a stage for Divine Cervinean schoolchildren, and hordes of tourists are ruining the environment. 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 214,569th in the world and 7,230th in Lazarus for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -22.79 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
