Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of CLU is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Erisson I Hastur with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, pith helmet sales, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 30.672 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 government is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Environment, Law & Order, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of CLU CLU Land. The average income tax rate is 1.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient CLUian economy, worth a remarkable 8,100 trillion arcade tokens a year, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 264,107 arcade tokens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Toxic smog is dismissed as the populace just "letting off steam", the automobile industry is sitting up and taking notice of the new 24 hour race events... as are the track's sleepless neighbours, Erisson I Hastur's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader, and Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume. Crime is totally unknown. CLU's national animal is the grid bug, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

CLU is ranked 11,910th in the world and 5th in Discordia for Highest Drug Use, scoring 114.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
