Cutate is the capital of Egraio. It is situated along the Egraite River and its two first falls.
Cutate was born as a fishers' village somewhen near 1500 BC. There has been earlier habitation nearby, however. Mills were built along the river since 139 AD and a food storage for the harbour city, Gistere, was built in 981 AD.
The municipality of Cutate grew slowly but steadily, having ten thousand inhabitants in 1500 AD. The event, that transformed the rural place into an exponentially growing city, was the introduction of idea about harvesting potential energy of flowing water. The upper dam was complete in 1901 and the lower one in 1930. Cutate was given the rights of a town in 1904.
In 1939, when enemies in the Botnian War II were advancing towards the then-capital Egraits, the government was relocated to Cutate, which, by then, was the second largest city in the kingdom. Government stayed in the city after the war, and Cutate was made the official capital in May 1948.
After more hydroelectric dams along the river, the economy rose from the devastation of war. The construction of a rapid transit system began in 1950.
The average discharge of Egraite River in Cutate is 2,600 m³/s
