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 renowned for its ban on automobiles, avant-garde cinema, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, humorless, devout population of 8.005 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 2,344 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 292,872 Lost Orbs of Phanatacoria, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cheddar Monks submit requests for a date in writing with an enclosed RSVP card, the well-to-do in Forest are never on time for important appointments, children have only the most basic of education, and Big Belly is watching you. 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 229,542nd in the world and 577th in Forest for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -39.14 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
