The Empire of CLU is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Erisson I Hastur with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, unlimited-speed roads, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 26.383 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 government is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Environment and Law & Order also on the agenda, 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. Income tax is unheard of.
The powerhouse CLUian economy, worth a remarkable 6,900 trillion arcade tokens a year, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 261,550 arcade tokens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.
Elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, the minority inevitably have their addenda vetoed, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, and trade is bringing a wide selection of strange resources and technologies into CLU although importers have the highest mortality rate in the nation (CLU has found 2 easter eggs). Crime is totally unknown. CLU's national animal is the grid bug, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
