The Humble Dwelling of Bombadil is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Tom Bombadil with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 22.767 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Withywindle. The average income tax rate is 68.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bombadilian economy, worth a remarkable 2,184 trillion Goldberries a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 95,939 Goldberries, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, a widely accepted trade policy is "tit-for-tat", elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, and prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams. 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 212,553rd in the world and 112th in Middle Earth for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -5.74 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
