The Humble Dwelling of Bombadil is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Tom Bombadil with an even hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, complete lack of prisons, and smutty television. The compassionate population of 15.82 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 Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Withywindle. The average income tax rate is 50.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bombadilian economy, worth a remarkable 1,242 trillion Goldberries a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 78,514 Goldberries, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens who use the word "Violet" incorrectly find their WhoTube content taken down, excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, the government seizes all major gold finds, and movie references are legally admissible in court. 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 23,499th in the world and 12th in Middle Earth for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 96.89 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
