Netherlands - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Netherlands - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia | Netherlands | Scoop.it
The Netherlands is a constituent country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, located mainly in North-West Europe with land in the Caribbean. Mainland Netherlands borders the North Sea to the north and west, Belgium to the south, and Germany to the east, and shares maritime borders with Belgium, Germany, and the United Kingdom. It is a parliamentary democracy organised as a unitary state. The country capital is Amsterdam and the seat of government is The Hague. The Netherlands in its entirety is often referred to as Holland, although North and South Holland are actually only two of its twelve provinces, which is a case of pars pro toto.
