The Featured Region Event of A Giant Meteor is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Halley Comet with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.904 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 Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Toutatis. The average income tax rate is 75.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Meteorian economy, worth a remarkable 1,827 trillion Lodestones a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Retail, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 184,508 Lodestones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Men are finding 'she spots' more easily but they can't use them, the latest political memes depict Halley Comet as an overly-choreographed robot, kilts and cassocks are viewed with suspicion, and mountain rescue missions can end with more people lost than found. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 2,698th in the world and 1st in The United Federation of Planets for Fattest Citizens, with 37.86 Obesity Rate.
