Golatia was a Middle-Eastern country on the Eastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea.
In the 1980s, an international terrorist-hunter calling himself "Qayin" made a deal with General Yossid, ruler of Golatia, and established his base of operations on Mount Ararat, in Golatia. The General also had recently signed a pact with America, after years of courting both the USA and the USSR. The launch of a US weather control satellite was set to take place in Golatia, and Qayin planned to usurp it for his own ends. At the same time, Batman and Talia al Ghul attempted to destroy that same satellite. Qayin's attempt succeeded, and he gained control of the unmanned spacecraft. Qayin and Yossid planned to use this as a weapon which no nation would be able to withstand. Yossid objected to Qayin's intention to invoke war between America and Russia, but when Yossid created a hurricane and sent it moving toward the Soviet Union, Qayin killed him. The hurricane devastated several Russian villages, and Russian President Mikhail Gorbachev warned President Ronald Reagan of the United States by telephone, that this attack would be considered an act of war.
Batman, and Talia's killers, made a final assault on Qayin's base, in Golatia, and deactivated his satellite-control circuitry, restoring control of the satellite to the Americans, who immediately destroyed it with ICBMs.
