“Where else but in a perpetually black and gloomy city may the Dark Knight operate?
~ Oscar Wilde on Gotham City
Gotham City is the real capital of the USA. After September 11th, its location is kept secret. From time to time it is moved around the country, and it is currently somewhere in the country. It is always night there and when it is day, the sky is gray and cloudy. Its inhabitants have strange sleeping habits. The superhero Batman fights crime there. The city is known for its insane millionaires and politicians; it is the home of many insane villians as well, such as Joker and Two-face.

The city's mental hospital, Arkham Asylum, has an honor system, whereby villians are expected to remain in their cells without being locked in. This explains the many breakouts, though sometimes a villian will stay in there for a while to rest and heal from fighting Batman, or to use the facility's fine exercise equipment and to use the fully stocked library to do scientific research to hatch new schemes.
