The Spiral Empire of Bycrest is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Bromious with an iron fist, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, anti-smoking policies, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 11.192 billion Bycrestials are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tepplin. The average income tax rate is 70.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Bycrestian economy, worth a remarkable 2,548 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 227,719 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Former stunt pilots are unable to pass the licence test to fly a drone, school plays were recently banned due to concerns of child endangerment, lavish state dinners in Tepplin are the state's leading budgetary expenditure, and plain-clothes police officers follow Dàguó tourists everywhere they go. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Bycrest's national animal is the Shadow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Bromism.

Bycrest is ranked 3,254th in the world and 2nd in Winterfell for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 13,247.2 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
