Location: Discordia

Regional Influence: Hegemony


The Empire of CLU is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Erisson I Hastur with a fair hand, and notable for its digital currency, sprawling nuclear power plants, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 35.202 billion CLUians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The tiny, liberal government is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, although Environment, Law & Order, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of CLU CLU Land. The average income tax rate is 2.0%.

The frighteningly efficient CLUian economy, worth a remarkable 9,237 trillion arcade tokens a year, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is an amazing 262,410 arcade tokens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Doctors prescribe videos of political debates to patients with insomnia, monocled merchants with funny accents are applying for CLUian citizenship in droves, the government is hoping that medical aid will speak louder than human rights abuses, and enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity. 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 1,669th in the world and 2nd in Discordia for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 222.16 on the Hayek Index.
