The Empire of CLU is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Erisson I Hastur with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 24.153 billion 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 22%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, followed by Gambling and Book Publishing.

The government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, bombs are permitted on planes for the 'security of the passengers', inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. 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 32nd in Discordia and 121,151st in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -12 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
