This is a very short and rough answer in part to the question of whether the Shire, (or any of Middle-earth outside of Angband or Mordor, for that matter) would have looked like the Europe of Louis XIV's day. It assumes some slight familiarity with the background story of Middle-earth -- at least of the story of Numenor.
