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, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cheerful population of 13.007 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 4,471 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 343,751 ¤ luminous orbs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, the amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded, and the Museum of Soybeans is the cultural heart of 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 240,375th in the world and 8,156th in Lazarus for Rudest Citizens, with 4.07 Insults Per Minute.
