The People's Republic of Cutote is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Big Money with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, otherworldly petting zoo, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 24.033 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, 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 20,158 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 838,780 Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,979,403 per year while the poor average 20,030, a ratio of 348 to 1.

Constipated-looking politicians are uptight about potty mouths, production of license plates has dropped as prisoners' hands are far too greasy to operate machinery, contestants on Cutote's Got Talent are screened by the government to make sure that they actually have talent, and there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates. 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 4th in the world and 1st in Pontbridge Islands for Most Corrupt Governments, with 2,104.91 Kickbacks Per Hour.
