The People's Republic of Cutote is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Big Money with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, parental licensing program, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 24.807 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 are ignored. 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 21,048 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 848,488 Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 7,948,438 per year while the poor average 7,619, a ratio of 1,043 to 1.

All writing must pass a censorship board before being allowed on the shelves, the only place where one can see the Cutoter cherry tree is in a museum, protestors are soaking piles of Credits in blood to make a point about government incomes, and frequent broken zippers have resulted in safety pins making a fashion comeback. 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 58th in the world and 1st in Pontbridge Islands for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 65,811.84 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
