The Island of Batavia was originally much smaller than it was today. At the time before colonization, Batavia was a very small island with other small islands around it. The First penguins to set foot on Batavia were the Batavi High Penguins, a local Tribe from modern Day Freezeland in 507 AD. They learned that the water that surrounded these islands were shallow, and decided to pump the water out. It took them 100 Years to do so, by building Dikes, Windmills, and Canals to drain out the water. They were able to connect all the small islands to make one big one, now known as the island of Batavia. Although there were still occastional floods that attacked the Low Lands, the Dikes kept out most of the threats. When they finally did so, they decided to create their own towns. They were ruled by the Kingdom of Arda, until 733, when Batavia joined the High Penguin Confederacy. They stayed part of the Confederacy until 1508, when the HPC began to tax the country harsly. The taxes that were payed to the King, where the taxes - insead of helping the government - were used on building projects. This enraged the Batavians, so a revolt was held in the city of Schipol, led by Prince Will of Orange. This ended up into the Eighty Days War, where the Northern Provinces of Batavia became independant while the southern Provinces stayed with the HPC because they were loyal to them. (one year later, the south finally Joined the North) and the Kingdom of Batavia was formed. Since then, Batavia had tried to conqer new lands for thier small territory. Batavia stayed Neutral during the war of Khanzem and the Colonial Antarctica War. In 2010, Swiss Ninja went "shopping" for islands. He saw Batavia, and wanted to take it. However, the Queen of Batavia and her Ministers did not like the idea. Unfortunately, SN Won the Deal. The Queen is still the ruler of Batavia, but the Queen must take orders from Emperor Swiss Ninja. Today, Batavia's cities are huge, having many penguins living there. It is confirmed that there are 16 Million High Penguins Living there currently. In 2011, the country voted taht Snoss rule was unnessesary, so Batavia peacefully split from Snowzerland, in exchange for Snowzerland regaining Alemania. In late April 2013, Queen Hooliana, like her mother, decided to step down and give the throne to her son, King Alex-Willem I and his wife from Parhentina, Queen Malvina.
 Geography and Climate
Like it said in it's history, Batavia was created from the sea, and most of the island is Below Sea Level. It has cool summers and cold winters, and gets lots of rain and snow. Batavia has a lot of Tundra Grass and some (but very little) natural trees (there are plenty of penguin planted trees) because it's an Artificially made island. Batavia's highest point is a 300 Meter tall hill known as Mount Caarlsburg. Terninia's rainy weather has also influnced Batavia, and get's 90% of it's rain from it.
Batavian cuisine consists mainly of fish and potatoes. Batavians are known for eating fresh herring, French fries, mashed potatoes, apple sauce, pea soup, and carrots. Batavians prefer also to drink Coffee during the morning and Tea in the afternoon. Other preferred drinks are Milk and Carbonated Water. For desserts, Batavians like eating colored marshmallows, cake, or cookies.
Batavia has a very powerful army and navy that has existed since it's founding in the 1600's. Like Snowzerland and Castilla, Batavia has also done some conquering as well. Batavian Soldiers and Navy officers wear 1800's style uniforms as shown above. A popular Batavian weapon is the bayonetted snow rifle since it is a gun and can also be used as a type of spear in close combat. Batavia has only a couple of bases on the motherland, one or two on Tremour Island, and many in their colony of Hindonesie.
Here are a list of some Batavian Colonies:
- West side of Tremour Island
 Relationships with Other Nations
- Osterreach - Poor. Shares a Bitter rivalry since Osterreach invaded Batavia at one time.
- Castilla - Excellent. In the past, Castilla and Batavia were bitter enemies. However, in the recent years, Castilla has been a popular vacation spot for the Batavians (and vice-versa). Greater friendship emerged in 2013 when Queen Malvina, a penguin from Parhentina, rose to power. Due to the royal connection, relations have improved and are strengthening greatly.
- Snowzerland - Poor. Batavia has separated from Snoss control and have a dislike for each other, though they still have foreign relations.
- Freezeland - Good. They share cultures.
- Batavia is a parody of the Netherlands. The name of Batavia comes form the Germanic tribe of the "Batavi" who where the first settlers of the Netherlands.
- Batavia has the largest population density in all of jthe Ninja Archipelago.
- Batavia was formerly a Snoss territory until it seceded.
- Railfan1 has family here.
