The Featured Region Event of A Giant Meteor is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Halley Comet with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, infamous sell-swords, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.031 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 large, corrupt, well-organized 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 91.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Meteorian economy, worth 483 trillion Lodestones a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 159,461 Lodestones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Stockbrokers dream of getting rich by writing textbooks, corporate lawyers are joyfully combing through the new tax code for any new loopholes for their clients, it's normal to start working life with crippling financial debt, and parents often ask to see a credit report before lending money to their own children. 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, 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 4,929th in the world and 1st in Crematorium for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 14,504 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
