The Benevolent Queendom of Divine Cervine is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Queen Arbeaone with an even hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 12.657 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 4,287 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 338,764 ¤ luminous orbs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People make a career out of medical voyeurism, rare art has become a significant factor in negotiating all foreign trade agreements, where there's a will there is usually a password manager, and children are disappointed to learn that cavemen never had a yabba-dabba-doo time riding dinosaurs to work. 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 11th in the world and 1st in Lazarus for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 6,813.32 Tourists Per Hour.
