The Hallowed States of I am Batman is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by King Parker with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ubiquitous missile silos, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 39.13 billion I am Batmanians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gotham. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.9%.

The frighteningly efficient I am Batmanian economy, worth an astonishing 18,815 trillion holy bat dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 480,855 holy bat dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,714,690 per year while the poor average 16,427, a ratio of 226 to 1.

Street preachers spend more time condemning government bureaucracy than passers-by, the nation operates a "finders-keepers" policy with other nations' citizens, baby boys who pick up pink crayons are sent to a psychiatric ward, and children are often punished for the sins of the fathers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. I am Batman's national animal is the bat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is DC Comics.

I am Batman is ranked 4,543rd in the world and 28th in The Alliance of Dictators for Largest Black Market, with 483 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
