Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of CLU is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Erisson I Hastur with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 29.402 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, Law & Order, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. 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 7,694 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 261,712 arcade tokens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, the ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks, a recent political speech drew the ire of nerds everywhere after the speaker claimed that Darth Vader was Harry Potter's father, and voting is voluntary. Crime is totally unknown. CLU's national animal is the grid bug, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

CLU is ranked 65,895th in the world and 2nd in Discordia for Most Pro-Market, scoring 48.89 on the Rand Index.
