A Giant Meteor

Population1.08 billion



The Featured Region Event of A Giant Meteor is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.08 billion Meteorians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic 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 83.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Meteorian economy, worth 140 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 black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Tourism. 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 130,522 Lodestones, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, postcards from Meteorian driving test centres are popular souvenirs, the government is attempting to impose a new national language on the public, and blind dates tend to result in bruised shins. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. A Giant Meteor's national animal is the Ameoba.

A Giant Meteor is ranked 59,061st in the world and 12th in Dinobots for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 163,214.24 Standard Monetary Units.
