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 anti-smoking policies, lack of airports, and triple-decker prams. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 8.966 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 2,644 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 294,981 Lost Orbs of Phanatacoria, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Surfing lessons include how to ward off sharks, the new Summon Bigger Fish Supremacy Party is faring well in the polls, children entertain themselves by throwing rocks through the windows of world-class museums, and the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees. 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 4,355th in the world and 147th in the Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 7,788.97 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
