The Benevolent Queendom of Divine Cervine is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Arbeaone with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, lack of airports, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cheerful population of 15.777 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 5,959 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 377,702 ¤ luminous orbs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, the banshee wail foretells skies of death, it is believed that belligerence is a passing phase foreign leaders will soon outgrow, and serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 206th in the world and 9th in Lazarus for Highest Poor Incomes, with 377,702.71 Standard Monetary Units.
