The Humble Dwelling of Bombadil is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Tom Bombadil with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and frequent executions. The hard-working population of 14.877 billion Bombadilians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized 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 43.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Bombadilian economy, worth a remarkable 1,182 trillion Goldberries a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Soda Sales. Average income is 79,506 Goldberries, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, pop sensation "Jack and the Holograms" is storming the charts, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, and colleges adhere to rigid ethnic quotas for admissions. Crime is totally unknown. Bombadil's national animal is the Barrowwight, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Mashed Potatoes.

Bombadil is ranked 25,281st in the world and 12th in Middle Earth for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 96.61 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
