My country was founded by Batman in 1936 when he was traveling to meet with someone for his new suit he just ordered but stopped by a peice of land and named it Gotham.
Gotham protects itself by having Batman there all the time. The people feel safe in gotham because batman is there all the time. All the people have to do is shine the bat light in the sky, then Batman will appear there.
My country Gotham believes in Batmaniasm. They believe in that cause it was founded by their god Batman and he is their protector also. They will not stop believing in Batmaniasm until a more powerful man takes over Batman.
