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 renowned for its daily referendums, feral children, and frequent executions. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 8.787 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 2,552 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 290,432 Lost Orbs of Phanatacoria, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mandatory patriotic themes make even the newest movies feel like remakes, anti-environmentalist dissidents must beware of government plants in their midst, a government program is underway to revitalize Darths and Droids's beaches, and shady doctors seem to have impeccable records. 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 12,933rd in the world and 186th in the Pacific for Most Armed, with 6.58 Weapons Per Person.
