The Webcomic RolePlaying Game of Darths and Droids is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by First Cheddar Monk Qui-Gon Jim with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, feral children, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 9.42 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 2,817 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 299,052 Lost Orbs of Phanatacoria, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Few that venture into government archives are ever seen again, some are born loving old plays and some have old plays thrust upon them, military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, and TV coverage of music festivals consists mostly of backstage interviews. 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 214,141st in the world and 5,407th in the Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -36.51 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
