The Benevolent Queendom of Divine Cervine is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Queen Arbeaone with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, compulsory vegetarianism, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, cheerful population of 9.915 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 3,003 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 extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 302,958 ¤ luminous orbs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

In a baffling press conference Queen Arbeaone proudly dismantled a broken door, cogitators and mass debaters are skiving off work to hang around the National Symposium Park, male med students learning female anatomy do so with their eyes tightly closed, 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 171,414th in the world and 6,423rd in Lazarus for Fattest Citizens, with 0.86 Obesity Rate.
