Kingdom of the Netherlands
The Kingdom of the Netherlands, commonly known as the Netherlands, is a sovereign state and constitutional monarchy with territory in Western Europe and in the Caribbean.

In practice, however, most of the Kingdom affairs are administered by the Netherlands on behalf of the entire Kingdom, with Aruba, Curaçao, and Sint Maarten being dependent on the Netherlands. The vast majority of the country of the Netherlands is located in Europe, with the exception of its three special municipalities that are located in the Caribbean. The countries of Aruba, Curaçao, and Sint Maarten are located in the Caribbean as well.
