The Webcomic RolePlaying Game of Darths and Droids is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by First Cheddar Monk Qui-Gon Jim with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, democratic, humorless, devout population of 8.507 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 2,445 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 287,526 Lost Orbs of Phanatacoria, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", a PhD just ain't what it used to be, people are more interested in gossip about the private lives of politicians than their policies, and marine biology students are shocked to discover that a whale is a mammal. 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 78,197th in the world and 106th in Refugia for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 1,975.98 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
