The Benevolent Queendom of Divine Cervine is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Queen Arbeaone with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, cheerful population of 12.09 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 4,016 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 332,182 ¤ luminous orbs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government funds large training centres to turn iridescent-winged purple perytons into functioning members of society, one tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber, nude art is becoming wildly popular, and Divine Cervinean novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about Queen Arbeaone. 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 229,224th in the world and 7,137th in Lazarus for Most Corrupt Governments, with 0.15 Kickbacks Per Hour.
