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 UK and one with the Netherlands, called the 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 neutral stance again.
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.
The main language in Belgium is English, however French, Dutch and to a lesser extent, German (as the national languages of Belgium) are also used.
Belgium borders the original territories of Germany, France, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. Through the years, as a result of military activity, Belgium has bordered other countries too - like Poland.

A formal structure of the Belgian cabinet was specifically not included in the constitution when it was created. Although there have been several amendments proposed to include one, none have been successful to date, with few making it to a vote. The reason for this is to allow the president to structure his/her cabinet as they wish to maximize the efficiency of the government. As of yet, no two consecutive presidents have used the same cabinet structure.
An example of the advantages of this flexibility is Thore Thoreson's cabinet in July-August 2010 where the new position of Chief of Staff was created so that Medrolke could be a member of the cabinet without having to manage a ministry, which he wasn't able to do as he was serving in the US military at the time.
The political parties of Belgium are listed below. They are the current parties of the Belgian Freedom Period, and may be subject to immediate change.

Through it's history and mainly through the wars with France and United Kingdom, Belgium has signed Mutual Protection Pacts (MPPs) with countries, members of ONE, mainly to defend its regions. The Belgian Congress approved recently the Charter of CoT and Belgium became a full member of Circle of Trust alliance in 10/13/2012 . Beginning of November 2013 Belgium left the alliance CoT just like most of it's members did and has since then taken a renewed neutral stance again.
