The Benevolent Queendom of Divine Cervine is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Queen Arbeaone with an even hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, prohibition of alcohol, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful population of 12.594 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 4,259 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 338,252 ¤ luminous orbs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There are no more heroes any more, the endangered saltwater humpback iridescent-winged purple peryton is only seen in captivity programs, any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist, and Super Barry Brothers is the most popular video game in the nation. 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 169,171st in the world and 6,953rd in Lazarus for Largest Black Market, with 76.7 billion Standard Monetary Units.
