The Empire of CLU is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Erisson I Hastur with a fair hand, and renowned for its happy-go-lucky citizens. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 25.029 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. The average income tax rate is 36%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, followed by Gambling and Book Publishing.

Commercial jingles have been ham-handedly forced into world renowned symphonies, bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and citizens select which government department gets their income tax arcade tokens each year. 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 1st in Discordia and 280th in the world for Smartest Citizens, scoring 42 on the Average Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
