The results of the relativistic mean field (RMF) calculations are presented for the ground-state properties of characteristic deformed nuclei covering the entire periodic table. The representative cases in the 2 s - 1 d, rare-earth and actinide regions are explicitly considered. The pairing correlations are considered in the constant gap approximation. It is observed that the set of parameters appearing in the Lagrangian chosen to reproduce the ground-state properties of nuclear matter and spherical doubly magic nuclei, also turns out to give a very satisfactory description of light- and heavy-deformed nuclei.
