The liar belongs to a group of mutually scratching themselves their backs, which they call a "system".
Their unutterable joy they cherish during a Christmas time as "valuable members of the society" has its source in embezzlement.

Unutterable is not usually used as a synonym for unpronounceable. Unutterble is used when something cannot be put into words because it is too terrible, disgusting, horrific or vast. Unpronounceable is used when the word has sounds which are not used in the language being spoken, so the speaker has physical difficulties with the lips, tongue and palate when trying to say the word.
