Map of Netherlands

Last update 19 March 2019

The Netherlands is a medium-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 had been on and off the map since 2011 due to the location of a historic Oil resource in the Western Netherlands, which used to be a keen interest by Icon-Poland.png Poland. Since the resource shuffle, the Netherlands is now standing pretty steady on the world map as the oil resource was removed from the region of Western Netherlands and replaced by iron, fish and sand. At this moment, The Netherlands are renting their resources to Icon-Canada.png Canada and Icon-Spain.png Spain.
