The Humble Dwelling of Bombadil is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Tom Bombadil with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate population of 18.654 billion Bombadilians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal 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 37.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bombadilian economy, worth a remarkable 1,503 trillion Goldberries a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 80,608 Goldberries, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Sniffer dogs check train passengers for body odour, military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, the government has an entire department dedicated to staring at microscopes and writing down letters, and people who have had childhood imaginary friends are told they can't ever be trusted with guns. 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 The Divine Worship of Mashed Potatoes.

Bombadil is ranked 25,653rd in the world and 15th in Middle Earth for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.09 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
