The Webcomic RolePlaying Game of Darths and Droids is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by First Cheddar Monk Qui-Gon Jim with an even hand, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, fear of technology, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 7.724 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 2,251 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 291,483 Lost Orbs of Phanatacoria, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The consent form for routine blood pressure measurement has been nominated for the 'Novel Of The Year' award, First Cheddar Monk Qui-Gon Jim is refusing to make decisions until the Moon is out of Capricorn, religious leaders order congregants to love any neighbour who is just like themselves, and city budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty. 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 227,980th in the world and 454th in Forest for Rudest Citizens, with 5.38 Insults Per Minute.
