The People's Republic of Cutote is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Big Money with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 25.766 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 primarily concerned with 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 22,267 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 864,239 Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 8,096,008 per year while the poor average 7,760, a ratio of 1,043 to 1.

Many whiskies taste suspiciously like automobile radiators, nuclear submarines have been deployed to protect the nation's banana supply, families returning from international vacations are unable to get their children back into the country, and grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them. 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 12th in the world and 2nd in Pontbridge Islands for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 1,537.49 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
