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 renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, fear of technology, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 7.582 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 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 2,157 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 284,549 Lost Orbs of Phanatacoria, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Farmers' market days almost always end in a shooting, suburban backyards are seized by the government and turned into national parks, Hide and Seek with Cuddle Bear is the most popular video game in the nation, and weather reports simply advise Cheddar Monks to 'look outside'. 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 17,644th in the world and 117th in Forest for Most Influential, scoring 2,256 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
