The People's Republic of Cutote is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Big Money with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, ritual sacrifices, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 23.123 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 18,992 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 821,354 Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 7,694,219 per year while the poor average 7,376, a ratio of 1,043 to 1.

10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, mathematicians are gathering an infinite number of Rabbit-Tevs and typewriters to see if they can recreate the works of Max Barry, and the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks". 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 209,595th in the world and 4th in Pontbridge Islands for Safest, scoring 1.62 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
