The Netherlands only has one official language, Dutch. Frisian, spoken in the Northern province of Fryslân, has been granted local official language status (rather than national official language status). Frisian is very close to English.

The Netherlands is a country found in the Northern Hemisphere and Eastern Hemisphere of the globe. As of 2021, The Netherlands is divided into 12 political divisions (called provinces or provincies in Dutch): Drenthe, Flevolan, Friesland, Gelderland, Groningen, Limburg, Noord-Brabant, Noord-Holland, Overjissel, Zuid-Holland, Utrecht, and Zeeland. Since the Kingdom of the Netherlands is a historically violent colonial nation, there are also three overseas special municipalities—Bonaire, Saba, and Sint Eustatius—in what the Kingdom refers to as “the Caribbean Netherlands.”

The Netherlands is bounded by the North Sea to the north and west, Germany to the east, and Belgium to the south.
