The Featured Region Event of A Giant Meteor is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Halley Comet with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.137 billion Meteorians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Toutatis. The average income tax rate is 92.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Meteorian economy, worth a remarkable 1,260 trillion Lodestones a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Retail, Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 205,321 Lodestones, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Harry Potter books are banned, posters encourage people to "Just Do It!", panels from bankrupt rooftop solar companies are used as props for sci-fi B-movies, and homophobia is off the menu. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. A Giant Meteor's national animal is the Ameoba, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Followers of the Feature.

A Giant Meteor is ranked 275,773rd in the world and 27th in The Realm of Freedom for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -12.3 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
