The Webcomic RolePlaying Game of Darths and Droids is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by First Cheddar Monk Qui-Gon Jim with a fair hand, and remarkable for its lack of airports, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, humorless, devout population of 5.359 billion Cheddar Monks love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Theed. The average income tax rate is 99.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Cheddar economy, worth a remarkable 1,325 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 Book Publishing and 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 247,271 Lost Orbs of Phanatacoria, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Survivors receive aid from only the most environmentally-friendly transport, government adverts say that twelve lashes a day keeps divine wrath at bay, therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads, and firebombing politicians' offices has become a common way of expressing dissatisfaction. 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 18,685th in the world and 50th in Forest for Most Stationary, with 756.9900710816 Days.
