The Nomadic Peoples of The Utes is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Bender - First of His Name with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, complete lack of prisons, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 7.887 billion Utesians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gambiniland. The average income tax rate is 88.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Utesian economy, worth a remarkable 3,400 trillion Invisible Sanddollars a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Retail, Information Technology, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 431,153 Invisible Sanddollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Utesians are fixin' ta comma any way they wanna, five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes, Brown Sugar 101 is a popular course at community colleges, and chalkboards are replaced with billboards in the classroom. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Utes's national animal is the Robert, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Lack Thereof.

The Utes is ranked 5,487th in the world and 2nd in Hollow Point for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 4,322.51 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
