The Netherland, informally Holland, is a country primarily located in Western Europe and partly in the Caribbean. It borders Germany to the east, Belgium to the south, and the North Sea to the northwest. The mild maritime climate, caused by the predominant wind from the North Sea, is found in the Netherland, creating moderately warm summers but cool winters in this country. The official language in the Netherland is Dutch, with West Frisian and English as the secondary official languages in Friesland and Caribbean Netherlands respectively.

Up until 2019, the Netherland has 1349.4/mi² (521/km²) as its population density is the second-most densely populated country in the European Union and 12th most one in the world, with a population of 17.4 million people living in 16,164 mi² (41865 km²).
The name the Netherlands literally means “low countries” due to its low elevation and flat topography.
