The Spiral Empire of Bycrest is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Bromious with an iron fist, and renowned for its flagrant waste-dumping, anti-smoking policies, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.95 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 dominated by the Department of Defense, although Education 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 68.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Bycrestian economy, worth a remarkable 1,837 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 205,350 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Artists are pillars of society, the nation's reinforced coffee tables are constructed to survive an atomic blast, search and rescue forces now accept cheques and all major credit cards, and the media have begun calling the government treasury "Bromious's stash". 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 16,070th in the world and 11th in Winterfell for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 328,397.82 Standard Monetary Units.
