The People's Republic of Cutote is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Big Money with an iron fist, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, infamous sell-swords, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 24.842 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, 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 21,088 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 848,915 Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 7,952,449 per year while the poor average 7,623, a ratio of 1,043 to 1.

Teenagers are making eye contact with each other for the first time in years, couch potatoes are considered to be model citizens, imprisonment is the leading cause of disownment, and Cutoters believe a soft answer turneth away wrath but punitive punishment is much more fun. 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 54,937th in the world and 4th in Pontbridge Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 4,424.3 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
