The Empire of CLU is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Erisson I Hastur with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, pith helmet sales, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 35.163 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, with Environment, Law & Order, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. 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 9,227 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 262,418 arcade tokens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

The military is researching proton packs and PK-meters to combat "unseen enemy forces", legislators must raise their hands if they want to speak, doctors prescribe videos of political debates to patients with insomnia, and monocled merchants with funny accents are applying for CLUian citizenship in droves. 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 169,920th in the world and 4th in Discordia for Most Corrupt Governments, with 0.35 Kickbacks Per Hour.
