The Benevolent Queendom of Divine Cervine is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Queen Arbeaone with an even hand, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, hatred of cheese, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful population of 13.487 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 4,716 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 349,737 ¤ luminous orbs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, nouveau riche farmers diligently take care of their golden calf herds, elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, and five-hundred-twenty-five-thousand-six-hundred revivals is how theatre-goers measure a year. 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 5th in the world and 1st in Lazarus for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 34,791.48 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
