The Featured Region Event of A Giant Meteor is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Halley Comet with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, fear of technology, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.139 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, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Toutatis. The average income tax rate is 87.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Meteorian economy, worth 299 trillion Lodestones a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. 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 impressive 139,988 Lodestones, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prisons are filled with the cackles and sobs of a deranged inmate population, the navy plans patrols according to how many pubs nearby ports have, what citizens give with one hand they take away with the other, and shouting contests are an important part of government job interviews. 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 34,379th in the world and 11th in Fettarian Peoples Land for Most Authoritarian, with 1,462.85 milliStalins.
