The People's Republic of Cutote is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Big Money with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program, ubiquitous missile silos, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 27.225 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 primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. 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 24,135 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 886,519 Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 8,304,754 per year while the poor average 7,960, a ratio of 1,043 to 1.

When flight control tells pilots to alter course the usual reply is "No, YOU move!", baseball caps are the new fashion trend, curtailed social programs have left many citizens bereft of any safety net, and citizens must pay to enjoy Cutote's pristine beaches. 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 27,819th in the world and 7th in Pontbridge Islands for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero valid endorsements.
