The Empire of CLU is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Erisson I Hastur with a fair hand, and notable for its happy-go-lucky citizens. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 25.266 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 35%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, followed by Gambling and Book Publishing.
Political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes, the government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, and foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle. 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.
