The Federal Republic of Cutias is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Marcus Nery with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, unlimited-speed roads, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.161 billion Cutiasians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paca Tatu. The average income tax rate is 43.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cutiasian economy, worth 171 trillion Bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 147,795 Bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians, captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', and drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cutias's national animal is the Cutia, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnostics.

Cutias is ranked 197,056th in the world and 716th in Europeia for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -4 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
