Bridge Policy E03: Is Club suit the longest suit when a player opens Standard 1♣️?

The 1♣️ opening in Standard American is an opening of convenience. Hands that don't fit in other more well-defined openings are opened with 1♣️. The 1Nt opening takes care of Balanced or semi-balanced hands with 15-17 HCP; with 5+ cards in a Major suit, one opens 1♠️ 1♥️; and with length in Diamonds, one opens 1♦️. The 1♣️ opening covers all other 12-21 HCP hands. What does that mean for opponents?
