The People's Republic of Cutote is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Big Money with an iron fist, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, keen interest in outer space, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 24.311 billion Cutoters are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dutote. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Cutoter economy, worth an astonishing 20,439 trillion Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Average income is a breathtaking 840,764 Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 7,876,064 per year while the poor average 7,550, a ratio of 1,043 to 1.

Credit scores fluctuate wildly with every change of government, environmental protestors are being rounded up and taken away in sinister black vans as a massive land development campaign gets underway, cleaners are very careful not to bump into the big red button on Big Money's desk, and one lone government employee can be seen hunting for the elusive stray white dog. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Cutote's national animal is the Rabbit-Tev, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Worship of Money.

Cutote is ranked 232,424th in the world and 6th in Pontbridge Islands for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1.49 Tourists Per Hour.
