The Humble Dwelling of Bombadil is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Tom Bombadil with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, lack of airports, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working population of 19.292 billion Bombadilians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Withywindle. The average income tax rate is 48.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bombadilian economy, worth a remarkable 1,573 trillion Goldberries a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 81,538 Goldberries, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anti-government web sites are springing up, East Lebatuckese luxury goods are plundered by the working class of Bombadil, hospitals have poor data security but send lots of bodies to be encrypted, and the new coalition government is so large nobody knows where it begins. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bombadil's national animal is the Barrowwight, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Divine Worship of Mashed Potatoes.

Bombadil is ranked 38,870th in the world and 18th in Middle Earth for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.91 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
