The Benevolent Queendom of Divine Cervine is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Arbeaone with an even hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, prohibition of alcohol, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cheerful population of 11.419 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 3,688 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 323,051 ¤ luminous orbs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Conspiracy theorists allege that the government is spying on them through their carbon monoxide detectors, carbon-footprint restrictions are making businesses walk, the justice of Divine Cervine is considered superior to that of other nations, and therapists can always squeeze in another house-call. 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 207,982nd in the world and 7,834th in Lazarus for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.01 Crimes Per Hour.
