The People's Republic of Cutote is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Big Money with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 21.014 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, although Law & Order and Industry are also considered important, 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 16,273 trillion Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Gambling. Average income is a breathtaking 774,422 Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,915,025 per year while the poor average 85,190, a ratio of 46.0 to 1.

Many of the country's largest dumps can be seen from space, a Pontbridge Islands Tourist Association survey has rated Cutote #1 for number twos, an increasingly villainous series of sports coaches are demanding the national mascot's true identity, and sofas are perpetually on sales that Must End Soon. 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 757th in the world and 2nd in Pontbridge Islands for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 93.6 Workforce Participation Rate.
