A Giant Meteor

Population1.889 billion



The Featured Region Event of A Giant Meteor is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its smutty television, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.889 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 Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Toutatis. The average income tax rate is 85.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Meteorian economy, worth 260 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, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. 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 137,937 Lodestones, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rubber stamp emojis are the new craze, theatre may or may not be changing for the better but it is being changed for good, according to the latest national census as many as two-thirds of the respondents possibly consider 'violet' their favorite color, and city sidewalks are crowded with overweight people. 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.

A Giant Meteor is ranked 200,768th in the world and 12th in The new united federations for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 32.53 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
