The People's Republic of Cutote is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Big Money with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 24.6 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 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 20,815 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 846,157 Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 7,926,607 per year while the poor average 7,598, a ratio of 1,043 to 1.

Coffee-addicted citizens look forward to baristas getting their name wrong at local coffee shops, apprentice builders get teased for wearing hard hats, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, and believers must practice religion behind church doors lest the government smite them with a mighty fine. 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 29th in the world and 2nd in Pontbridge Islands for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 77,454.83 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
