The Webcomic RolePlaying Game of Darths and Droids is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by First Cheddar Monk Qui-Gon Jim with an even hand, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, daily referendums, and triple-decker prams. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 9.439 billion Cheddar Monks are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Administration, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Theed. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Cheddar economy, worth a remarkable 2,820 trillion Lost Orbs of Phanatacoria a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 298,803 Lost Orbs of Phanatacoria, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Twice-daily toilet inspection rotas for government buildings are archived for public appraisal, government policies change at the drop of a rabbit, the police force is on a recruitment drive, and shelters struggle to keep up with the endless intake of stray animals. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Darths and Droids's national animal is the Summon Bigger Fish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Dice Rolling.

Darths and Droids is ranked 216,205th in the world and 5,375th in the Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring -51.55 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
