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 notable for its museums and concert halls, prohibition of alcohol, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 7.316 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 2,028 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 and Book Publishing. 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 277,284 Lost Orbs of Phanatacoria, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety, funerals are often rudely interrupted by juggling clowns shouting for volunteers from the audience, parties that are too noisy are broken up to prevent disturbing wildlife, and census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate. 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 154,728th in the world and 214th in Forest for Fattest Citizens, with 9.07 Obesity Rate.
