Location of the Netherlands

The Netherlands is the main constituent country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. It is a densely populated country located in Western Europe with three island territories in the Caribbean. The European part of the Netherlands borders Germany to the east, Belgium to the south, and the North Sea to the northwest, sharing maritime borders with Belgium, the United Kingdom, and Germany.[1] The three largest cities in the Netherlands are Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague. Amsterdam is the country's capital,[2] while The Hague holds the Dutch seat of parliament and government.[3] The port of Rotterdam is the world's largest port outside East-Asia, and by far the largest port in Europe.[4]

The Netherlands has a market-based mixed economy, ranking 17th of 177 countries according to the Index of Economic Freedom.[5] It had the thirteenth-highest per capita income in the world in 2013 according to the International Monetary Fund.
