The People's Republic of Cutote is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Big Money with an iron fist, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, pith helmet sales, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 21.764 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, 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 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 17,202 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 790,404 Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,411,486 per year while the poor average 116,660, a ratio of 29.2 to 1.

Assault rifles sized for 7-year-olds are a frighteningly popular export, groups of three or more trees are cut down in the name of 'child safety', the army's use of chemical weapons leaves a bad taste in the mouth, and the nation's soldiers sleep four to a bed in order to use space economically. 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 584th in the world and 3rd in Pontbridge Islands for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 1,039.32 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
