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 notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, pith helmet sales, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 28.871 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 are ignored. 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 7,539 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 261,139 arcade tokens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized, whipping posts and lashes have been transferred to the Historical Museum of CLUian Embarrassments, the number of students attending university has reached a record high, and hordes of gardening enthusiasts are being banished from cities nationwide. Crime is totally unknown. CLU's national animal is the grid bug, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

CLU is ranked 16,605th in the world and 7th in Discordia for Largest Black Market, with 9.35 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
