The People's Republic of Cutote is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Big Money with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, triple-decker prams, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 23.379 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 are ignored. 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 19,311 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 826,031 Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 7,738,041 per year while the poor average 7,418, a ratio of 1,043 to 1.

Police drones follow every suspected Peeping Tom, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, one-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, and the government keeps its thumb on the scales of justice. 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 205,042nd in the world and 4th in Pontbridge Islands for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.44 Crimes Per Hour.
