The People's Republic of Cutote is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Big Money with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 21.24 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 16,566 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 779,959 Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,855,613 per year while the poor average 89,680, a ratio of 43.0 to 1.

Professional athletes can't see balls amid the deluge of advertisements, epileptic patients switch their medications to whichever has a 'buy one get one free' offer, the government is well known for declaring war on other countries for suspected slights, and Cutoter athletes are close to breaking the 2 minute mile and the 16 meter long jump. 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 151,194th in the world and 5th in Pontbridge Islands for Most Beautiful Environments, with 0.36 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
