Map of Netherlands


The Netherlands is a small-sized country in the North-West of Europe. The Netherlands originally consists out of 4 regions, named after the 4 directions of the wind (Northern, Southern, Western and Eastern Netherlands). It borders with 6 regions of 4 foreign countries. It has a small but active population. The Netherlands has been on and off the map since 2011 due to the location of an Oil resource in the Western Netherlands, which has been a keen interest by Icon-Poland.png Poland. Nowadays The Netherlands and Poland have signed a treaty to lend out the Western and the Southern Netherlands to Poland. In return, the Netherlands is allowed to keep the Northern and the Eastern territories with protection of Poland.

2ekamerlogo-m.png Congress

The Dutch Congress, known as the Tweede Kamer (Second chamber)

The legislative chamber of the country is also referred to as Congress, Parliament, or Second Chamber. It debates on laws The Congress of the Netherlands is the highest legislative body. With a 66% percent majority, Congress can change anything. (In order to amend the constitution, two votes needs to be held in two consecutive terms).

In the Netherlands we distinguish the in-game Congress, where simple adjustments to the game, like changing taxes, can be made, and forum Congress, where more complex laws and policies are debated and voted on. Every new law needs to be debated and voted on in forum Congress before being processed in-game. Every citizen of the Netherlands may participate in public Congress debates, however only Congress-members may vote on proposals. The Congress is managed by the Chairman of Congress and his deputy the vice-chairman of Congress, they manage the debates (closing votes, closing old topics, tame the incidental flamewar) they publish updates on the congress in eNL congress newspaper.
