The People's Republic of Cutote is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Big Money with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 23.134 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 19,005 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 Retail, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Average income is a breathtaking 821,531 Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 7,695,874 per year while the poor average 7,378, a ratio of 1,043 to 1.

Orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step, the explosive fireball of the disintegrating space shuttle has devastated Cape Cutote, funding for education has been redirected into the military, and the police use sound cannons and mortars to deal with loud parties. 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 2,214th in the world and 2nd in Pontbridge Islands for Lowest Crime Rates, with 129.07 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
