The Featured Region Event of A Giant Meteor is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Halley Comet with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.337 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 524 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 157,181 Lodestones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Women find themselves saying "my eyes are up here" more often than they used to, daisy chain gangs plant flowers and pick up litter, well-off serial killers write monthly checks to avoid jail time, and most people learn to drive on crash courses. 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 84,940th in the world and 21st in Mirror World for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 3,008.95 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
