The Queen's State of Curator is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its complete lack of public education, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 10.927 billion Curatorians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.9%.

The very strong Curatorian economy, worth 465 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 42,625 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 289,798 per year while the poor average 2,290, a ratio of 126 to 1.

The government is avowedly atheist, voting is voluntary, and all tariffs have been abolished. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Curator's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Curator is ranked 21,615th in the world and 17th in The Awakening for Most Avoided, scoring 193 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
