November 2007-October 2008

In the late months of 2007 Netherlands in the New World had a slow start, but things changed fast after the 1st party emerged (Dutch Erepublik Political Party), the first company was created, the Dutch National Bank and a training company. Some of them where upgraded to higher levels. Many newborn citizens where wheeled in from online-forums such as Tweakers and Fok. Creating a rivalry between them in the form of two parties (Gathering of Tweakers and FOK! Party). Due to the growth it made the Netherlands the number 1 country in Republik for a short while. The first MPP was with Italy in April 2008, and Netherlands joined PEACE in August 2008.

Iron & Wine came frequently to power, many times rivaling left-winged parties SPV, LN, LSD, whose party president Cocoamok took over power for the longest consecutive presidential term to date (4 terms). Besides these two parties there were more parties coming and going. In December 2008 GDGR and C.D.P fused together in GDGR. The new name for this party is : Liberaal ChristenDemocraten. In March 2009 far-right party Neerlands Hoop joined the government.

formation

The Netherlands unofficially became the United Netherlands when it merged with Belgium in April 2009. During the congress election on 25th March, 2009, Spanish citizens who called themselves "Las tropas imperiales" won a majority of the congressional seats in Belgium, effecting in a political takeover. In response to this, Belgian co-president CreveRoeland decided to cede all Belgian territories to the Netherlands on the 5th April 2009, forming a union and preventing a Spanish president from being elected.

During the union

The unification, that had gained major support, was a success. Without many troubles, both countries were unified under one flag. However, there were also Belgians that fled the country and moved to the UK. The separatist parties had no or little influence on state affairs, because they are not in the top 5 list of political parties and are really small. From French-speaking side, which wasn't much (even in the Belgian period) there was support for the unification. After a little baby boom, started by France, many French speaking citizens from Belgium joined. The Belgian Party that supports the union became the biggest party, and their CP candidate ThomasRed is the longest sitting non-consecutive president in the history of the (United) Netherlands. (5 full terms, 2 half terms).

End of the Union

On October 22, 2009 a resistance war was started in the region of Flanders. The operation was carried out by the Romanian group, The Group, and the American Seal Team 6. Despite some minor tanking on both sides, the RW could not be stopped and the region was taken. Several days after, a resistance was started in the region of Brussels; PEACE was unable to defend the region. On December 15, 2009 (Day 737) the UK attacked and conquered Flanders. A day after, Brussels was also conquered by the UK, effectively taking away all Belgian regions from the control of The Group. The Netherlands waited for their ally to hand over the Belgian regions, but for some reason that didn't happen. Belgian's were claiming their independence, although by rule, they never officially left the union as stated in the union treaty. In early 2010 unofficially the merger was no more after Belgium remained independent, and the Netherlands assumed they left the Union. After Belgium left the Union, the Netherlands kept the name United Netherlands and it's abbreviation UNL for over half a year. This to keep showing that the Netherlands was an open country for anyone in the world, and that the nation as always was united. The only remains on the United Netherlands is that they keep going to the same chatchannel (#eUNL on rizon.net)

March 2010 - now

Dutch flag

Mid 2010 some nationalistic tendencies emerged and the name was altered into the Netherlands, even Dutch was shortly reinstated as official language again in the hopes it would benefit a potential babyboom, this against the dismal of the international minded citizens. The plan backfired, and quite some internationally oriented citizens (of whom the last Belgians) left the country left. Soon both English was restored as an official language, together with Dutch they were declared both official languages. After a year of debating and experimenting, In October 2010 the Netherlands switched from a Party-Coalition-based government to a semi-CP-government. Late 2010 most parties were suffering from PTO's from a Croatian feminist organization. Icon-Poland.png Poland and Icon-Serbia.png Serbia invaded the Netherlands in beginning of 2011 and wiped it of the map multiple times, resulted that all parties were moved, thus creating the opportunity for the Dutch to only create 1 party for a period of time (Verenigd Nederland), in order to counter any future PTO's. The Dutch were able to regain 2 of their regions in January 2011 through RW's, however Poland regain the territories quite fast. NL got out of the grip of Poland late May 2011, but when Poland signed peace with Icon-France.png France, Poland wiped the Netherlands off the map for the 5th time and threatened to not let the Dutch back on the map again. President Daniel Parker signed a temporary truce with Poland in order to get his country back on the map.
