Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of CLU is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Erisson I Hastur with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 29.818 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 1.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient CLUian economy, worth a remarkable 7,803 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 261,690 arcade tokens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, it is rumoured that Erisson I Hastur uses a magic 8-ball to make policy decisions, RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, and exam halls are littered with used needles and empty pill bottles. Crime is totally unknown. CLU's national animal is the grid bug, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

CLU is ranked 178,000th in the world and 11th in Discordia for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 8.48 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
