The Humble Dwelling of Bombadil is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Tom Bombadil with an even hand, and notable for its lack of airports, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate population of 22.987 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, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Withywindle. The average income tax rate is 68.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bombadilian economy, worth a remarkable 2,258 trillion Goldberries a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 98,230 Goldberries, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

It's normal to start working life with crippling financial debt, visitors to Self-Sufficiency National Park who ask for trail maps are handed a pen and a blank sheet of paper, large sections of Bombadil have been named national reserves to protect the native tribes living there, and a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up. 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 4,281st in the world and 5th in Middle Earth for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 23 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
