The Humble Dwelling of Bombadil is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Tom Bombadil with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, ban on automobiles, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 20.688 billion Bombadilians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Withywindle. The average income tax rate is 64.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bombadilian economy, worth a remarkable 1,695 trillion Goldberries a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 81,962 Goldberries, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Many parents are becoming frustrated with their children's choices in spouses, Tom Bombadil's opponents have adopted dogs to chase away the mailman, Barrowwight is one of the most popular forenames in Bombadil, and returning vacationers often find that their property is now a construction site. 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 26,059th in the world and 16th in Middle Earth for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 6,729.2 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
