Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

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, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 29.026 billion CLUians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, although Environment, Defense, and Law & Order are also considered important, 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 1.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient CLUian economy, worth a remarkable 7,576 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 261,021 arcade tokens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, sullen teenagers in bright orange 'community payback' onesies can be seen picking litter at the roadside, religion is strictly forbidden within school grounds, and CLUian athletes are close to breaking the 2 minute mile and the 16 meter long jump. Crime is totally unknown. CLU's national animal is the grid bug, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

CLU is ranked 1,581st in the world and 1st in Discordia for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91.37 Years.
