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 notable for its infamous sell-swords, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 8.806 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 2,562 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 291,007 Lost Orbs of Phanatacoria, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

No one is quite sure what many government officials look like, dandruff and athlete's foot are seen as signs of physical beauty, schoolboys who turn to watch pretty girls go by are given detention, and the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea. 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 232,031st in the world and 5,716th in the Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -9.25 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
