The Nomadic Peoples of The Utes is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Bender - First of His Name with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 6.487 billion Utesians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gambiniland. The average income tax rate is 90.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Utesian economy, worth a remarkable 2,173 trillion Invisible Sanddollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 335,086 Invisible Sanddollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

No one over the age of 35 has the slightest clue what is going on, giant beards and handlebar moustaches are increasingly popular, door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes', and frequent broken zippers have resulted in safety pins making a fashion comeback. Crime is totally unknown. The Utes's national animal is the Robert, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Lack Thereof.

The Utes is ranked 30,178th in the world and 3rd in Hollow Point for Most Pro-Market, scoring 71.78 on the Rand Index.
