The Webcomic RolePlaying Game of Darths and Droids is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by First Cheddar Monk Qui-Gon Jim with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, compulsory vegetarianism, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 9.414 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 2,810 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 298,590 Lost Orbs of Phanatacoria, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, holidaymakers sleep curled up on the floor as hotel beds are replaced with oversized bookcases, the government has declared victoria over the cheese menace, and the treehouse in Summon Bigger Fish Park is the tallest building in Darths and Droids. 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 214,665th in the world and 5,437th in the Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -23.1 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
