The Empire of CLU is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Erisson I Hastur with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, national health service, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 38.068 billion CLUians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, liberal government is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Environment, Law & Order, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of CLU CLU Land. The average income tax rate is 4.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient CLUian economy, worth a remarkable 9,548 trillion arcade tokens a year, is quite specialized and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 250,838 arcade tokens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle", serial killers who are released early distribute death but not their seed, gossip magazines have pictures of Erisson I Hastur sunbathing on the beach with political rivals, and lottery winners spend most of their money on security. Crime is totally unknown. CLU's national animal is the grid bug, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

CLU is ranked 2,124th in the world and 2nd in Discordia for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 2,438.69 Tourists Per Hour.
