The People's Republic of Cutote is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Big Money with an iron fist, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, parental licensing program, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 31.074 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 tiny, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with 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 29,303 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 Information Technology. Average income is a breathtaking 943,037 Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 8,834,295 per year while the poor average 8,466, a ratio of 1,043 to 1.

Bars are packed at all hours, Dogman-branded weapons are all the rage in the militaristic comic-book community, the nation's interest in space is at an all-time high while interest in saving the planet is at an all-time low, and loss of the ability to speak is a common affliction of the elderly. 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 35th in the world and 2nd in Pontbridge Islands for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 63,196.77 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
