The Featured Region Event of A Giant Meteor is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Halley Comet with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory vegetarianism, absence of drug laws, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.478 billion Meteorians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Toutatis. The average income tax rate is 92.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Meteorian economy, worth 550 trillion Lodestones a year, is quite specialized and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 158,283 Lodestones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is well known for its rather dull and family-friendly architecture, when conspiracy theorists talk about "government moles" they're referring to mysteriously mobile skin lesions, possession of tomato seeds with intent to garden is a criminal offence, and days begin with afternoon tea. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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 7,353rd in the world and 1st in Cemetery for Fattest Citizens, with 19.06 Obesity Rate.
