The Webcomic RolePlaying Game of Darths and Droids is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by First Cheddar Monk Qui-Gon Jim with an even hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, avant-garde cinema, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, humorless, devout population of 7.752 billion Cheddar Monks are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 2,264 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 292,148 Lost Orbs of Phanatacoria, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Murderers and thieves claim divine inspiration to avoid prosecution, every week is blindness awareness week, the national census includes an opt-in to join the government-run dating service, and the new Summon Bigger Fish Supremacy Party is faring well in the polls. 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 225,423rd in the world and 436th in Forest for Least Corrupt Governments, with 26.04 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
