Netherlands

The '''Netherlands''' (

The Netherlands' name literally means "Low Country (Low Countries)", inspired by its low and flat geography, with only about 50% of its land exceeding one metre above sea level (Above mean sea level). Most of the areas below sea level are man-made. Since the late 16th century, large areas (polders) have been reclaimed (land reclamation) from the sea and from lakes, amounting to nearly 17% of the country's current land mass.

With a population density of 406 people per km² – 497 if water is excluded – the Netherlands is a very densely populated country (List of sovereign states and dependent territories by population density) for its size. Only Bangladesh, South Korea and Taiwan have both a larger population and a higher population density. Nevertheless, the Netherlands is the world's second largest exporter of food and agriculture products, after the United States. Netherlands: Agricultural exports top 80 billion Euros Holland is world-leading exporter of agri-food products

The Netherlands was one of the first countries in the world to have an elected parliament, and since 1848 it has been governed as a parliamentary (parliamentary system) democracy and a constitutional monarchy, organised as a unitary state. The Netherlands has a long history of social tolerance and is generally regarded as a liberal (liberalism) country, having legalised abortion, prostitution and euthanasia, while maintaining a progressive drugs policy (drug policy of the Netherlands). In 2001 it became the world's first country to legalize same-sex marriage (same-sex marriage in the Netherlands).

The Netherlands is a founding member of the EU (European Union), Eurozone, G-10 (Group of Ten (economic)), NATO, OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development), WTO (World Trade Organization) and a part of the trilateral Benelux economic union. The country is host to the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons and five international courts: the Permanent Court of Arbitration, the International Court of Justice, the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, the International Criminal Court and the Special Tribunal for Lebanon. The first four are situated in The Hague, as is the EU's criminal intelligence agency Europol and judicial co-operation agency Eurojust. This has led to the city being dubbed "the world's legal capital". , specifically, ''"In the 1990s, during his term as United Nations Secretary-General, Boutros Boutros-Ghali started calling The Hague the world's legal capital."'' The Netherlands is also a part of the Schengen Area.

The Netherlands has a market-based mixed economy, ranking 17th of 177 countries according to the Index of Economic Freedom.
