The Empire of CLU is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Erisson I Hastur with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 28.69 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, Defense, and Law & Order 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 all-consuming CLUian economy, worth a remarkable 7,445 trillion arcade tokens a year, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 259,510 arcade tokens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, every workday begins with group therapy, and the native owl population is in permanent hibernation. Crime is totally unknown. CLU's national animal is the grid bug, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

CLU is ranked 179,661st in the world and 12th in Discordia for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 8.49 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
