The People's Republic of Cutote is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Big Money with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, zero percent divorce rate, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 24.587 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 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 20,794 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 Gambling. Average income is a breathtaking 845,763 Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 7,922,915 per year while the poor average 7,595, a ratio of 1,043 to 1.

Games of cops and robbers typically end in at least one fatal shooting, many of the poor live from cradle to grave without ever seeing sunlight, children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, and Court TV ratings have skyrocketed now that executions are filmed on location. 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 242,498th in the world and 6th in Pontbridge Islands for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1.48 Tourists Per Hour.
