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 remarkable for its ban on automobiles, frequent executions, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 9.396 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 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 2,798 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 297,864 Lost Orbs of Phanatacoria, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

First Cheddar Monk Qui-Gon Jim is refusing to make decisions until the Moon is out of Capricorn, minstrels carrying coconut shells provide sound effects wherever their nobles wander, a commonwealth of equal nations recognises that Darths and Droids is a bit more equal than the others, and a well-funded social safety net protects the unfortunate. 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 4,998th in the world and 130th in the Pacific for Most Corrupt Governments, with 177.65 kickbacks per hour.
