The Webcomic RolePlaying Game of Darths and Droids is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by First Cheddar Monk Qui-Gon Jim with a fair hand, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, state-planned economy, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 5.513 billion Cheddar Monks love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded, outspoken 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 average income tax rate is 99.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Cheddar economy, worth a remarkable 1,388 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, highly specialized black market in Basket Weaving, Book Publishing, 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. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an amazing 251,890 Lost Orbs of Phanatacoria, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Teen boys and girls find stick-figure-aided lectures on their comradestruation emphasises socialist unity more than biology, Cheddar junkies argue that poppy stalks are ornamental flowers, astronomers are flocking to Darths and Droids to take advantage of its clear night skies, and graffiti graces every city's streets. 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 45,277th in the world and 155th in Forest for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 69.74 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
