The Webcomic RolePlaying Game of Darths and Droids is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by First Cheddar Monk Qui-Gon Jim with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 11.648 billion Cheddar Monks are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it prioritizes Administration, although Environment, Welfare, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Defense isn't funded at all. 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 3,679 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 Tourism. 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 315,871 Lost Orbs of Phanatacoria, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fat-shaming is now public policy, schools offer a range of lessons in subjects as diverse as The Economics of Bullying for Lunch Money, a sledgehammer and a spray can are seen as the default tools of political debate, and crop circles are intently studied by investigators with questionable merits. 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 260,670th in the world and 7,919th in the Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -17.98 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
