The Featured Region Event of A Giant Meteor is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Halley Comet with an iron fist, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.101 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, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Toutatis. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Meteorian economy, worth a remarkable 1,251 trillion Lodestones a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Retail, Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 205,134 Lodestones, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Folk singers have replaced personal injury lawyers in being ridiculed as "ambulance chasers", schoolchildren are divided over Halley Comet's "Why Tigers are Cooler than Lions" speech, unfit police officers collapse while trying to capture unusually athletic criminals, and 'I'm Coming Out' has shot to the top of the nation's music charts. 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 3,141st in the world and 2nd in Tracke for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 11,797.8 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
