The Spiral Empire of Bycrest is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Bromious with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, zero percent divorce rate, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 12.384 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, although Education, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, 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 72.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Bycrestian economy, worth a remarkable 2,787 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 225,100 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

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 19,087th in the world and 5th in Winterfell for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 5,229.93 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
