Take the entire map of Charted space, all 11,000 worlds of it, this would be but a tiny portion of the birch world in terms of living space. The surface would look much like the surface of Earth, it would be a type IV civilization, the only kind of type IV civilization possible in a setting without FTL drives, you need to cannibalize the mass of one thousand galaxies to build a birch World, most of the material would be hydrogen, you only need the upper crust to be solid.

If you have a setting where there are gates to other universes, this one would be an interesting one to visit. This works best in a very ancient universe, one of the motivations for building one of these is to survive well into the cold and dark era of the universe, as time moves much more slowly on the surface of a birch World as it is almost a black hole itself.
