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 deadly medical pandemics, infamous sell-swords, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.704 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Toutatis. The average income tax rate is 93.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Meteorian economy, worth 576 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 155,570 Lodestones, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

Large-girthed charity workers assign themselves healthy wages for their work with starving children, Halley Comet claims tax rises are the result of 'curses', town welcome signs list corporate sponsors, and politicians spend more time in courtrooms than in Parliament. 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 61,654th in the world and 2nd in Indonesia for Most Inclusive, scoring 108.14 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
