    Why is Holland such an awesome country?

    Let's all share our thoughts about it. It's common knowledge that Holland is the most happy and awesome country in the world, and has been so for quite some time. Let's philosophize about the reasons for this place, the so-called Shangri-la of Europe, where everyone is happy and dancing in the streets.

    Holland isn't even a country.
    This is my province. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
    My province is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.
    My province, without me, is useless. Without my province, I am useless.
    I must attack hard with my province. I must attack harder than my enemy who is trying to pk me. I must pk him before he pk's me. I will...

    Yes it is. The official name is the Netherlands, largest country in the Kingdom of the Netherlands including a few other islands. The colloquial name for our country for many people around the world country is Holland. By your logic China isn't a country either, it should either be called "People's republic of China" or "People's republic of the Middle Kingdom". If we say China you could just aswell mean Taiwan, who also still lay claim on the entirety of "China", with their de jure capital still in Nanjing, Mainland China.

    The Netherlands have had many names through the ages, the Spanish called the entire region of what is now Belgium + Holland + some more "Flandres". Other names include The Low Countries (Paises Bajos, Pays-Bas). There's always a tentative relation between exonyms and endonyms, colloquialism and purism. In the end what matters is that in social interaction one knows what you're referring to.

    Thank you. Feel free to poetically express your undying love for this pearl, built on the sea out of the limbs of an angel by a hardworking populace who's sole goal it is to make the world a better place!

    We even got certain areas to cater for that need, most famous that in Amsterdam. All your needs can be met there although I must admit the sucking is usually done not by dutch people.

    I'm a bad poet. I'll give it a try.

    Holland, Holland, why are you so diverse.
    Theres nothing in the world that compares to beautiful Holland.
    It sometimes feels like a curse.
    Hight trees catch a lot of wind (see what I did there Dutchies?)
    So of course people try to put Holland in a bad daylight
    That's often just jealous minds
    Those people are not from Holland and ever so often not too bright.
    Windmills, cheese, canals, total freedom, what is there not to like
    You can even visit Zeeland to see a little boy with his finger in a dyke (I know what you're thinking)
    Oh sweet Holland i wish you were just for the joy of me and my family
    I could enjoy all you offer in peace, silence and with the ones I love
    But keeping away Holland from the world, would be an act against humanity.


    That's high class poetry there. Didn't know I had that in me.
