The Empire of CLU is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Erisson I Hastur with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 24.741 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 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 34%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, followed by Gambling and Book Publishing.

The government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', people are now classified as male, female, or genderqueer, the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The CLU CLU Land Times is sold out, and psychological disorders are a taboo subject. 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 16th in Discordia and 50,274th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -5 on the Hayek Index.
