'The Force' chosen as religion for some Czechs
AP photoA recent census carried out in the Czech Republic revealed more than 15,000 people believed in "the Force" from the "Star Wars" films.
Half of those surveyed in the census shied away from answering the question on religion, while there was a strong showing by Czechs who declared themselves to be "Jedi Knights."
Overall, 15,070 Czechs identified themselves as "Jedi Knights" believing in "the Force," with the largest number of followers coming from the capital, Prague, with 3,977 adherents.
The fewest "Jedi Knights", just 0.08 percent of the population, came from the central region of Vysočina.
