The United States of The Free States of Gotham is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Bruce Wayne with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, national health service, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.738 billion Free States of Gothamians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gotham City. The income tax rate is 100.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Free States of Gothamian economy, worth a remarkable 1,475 trillion Bottle Caps a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 190,687 Bottle Caps, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new biography of Bruce Wayne is subtitled "How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Hate the Bomb", polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, and UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Free States of Gotham's national animal is the Bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Free States of Gotham is ranked 8,608th in the world and 158th in the West Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 1,475 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
