Map of Belgium

Last update March 29, 2014


Belgium (French: Belgique, Dutch: België, German: Belgien) is a small country in Western Europe. Belgium is currently in its third era of existence, having been part of two different unions, one with the Icon-UK.png UK and one with the Icon-Netherlands.png Netherlands, called the Icon-United Netherlands.png United Netherlands. Belgium is a parliamentary democracy. It had maintained a neutral stance in the politics and wars surrounding it, until 13 October 2013 when it has declared its support for the Circle of Trust (CoT)and was a full member. Beginning of November 2013 Belgium left the alliance CoT just like most of it's members did and has since then taken a renewed a neutral stance for a while, but has gone pro-Sirius since.

Main article: History of Belgium

Belgium was among the first countries in the beginning of eRepublik. Belgium's population grew slowly before they agreed to merge with the United Kingdom in April 2008. In February 2009, 10 months after Belgium merged with the United Kingdom, two resistance wars were launched to free Belgium, the first failed but the next succeeded. It wasn't until the 21st February 2009 before Belgium became a complete independent nation.
