The Empire of CLU is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Erisson I Hastur with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 24.949 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 35%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, followed by Gambling and Book Publishing.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of CLU's radio stations, and commercial jingles have been ham-handedly forced into world renowned symphonies. 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 3rd in Discordia and 1,054th in the world for Safest, scoring 1,151.6 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
