The Empire of CLU is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Erisson I Hastur with a fair hand, and renowned for its hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 24.882 billion CLUians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Social Equality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of CLU CLU Land. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 37%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, followed by Gambling and Book Publishing.

The government is seen as openly hostile to all religion, coalition governments are essential to passing new laws, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. CLU's national animal is the grid bug, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the arcade token.

CLU is ranked 1st in Discordia and 2,069th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 657 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
