The Dutch Antilles (Dutch: Nederlandse Antillen; Papiamentu: Antia Hulandes) is a sovereign federal republic in the Caribbean.


After contact was lost with the mainland Netherlands, little politically changed. Unlike its French and British neighbours, it was a constituent nation, not a colony, meaning that it was able to adapt better. Even today, the Netherlands Antilles still legally claim to be part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Despite this, over the first few months after the Great Nuclear War, the Estates granted itself more and more powers, essentially becoming a sovereign state. At the same time, it began stronger control over the economy, whilst devolving many powers.

Member States

The Netherlands Antilles is made up of four states:

International Relations

The Netherlands Antilles has good relations with both the French Community and the West Indies Federation. It also experiences extremely strong ties with fellow Dutch-speaking Suriname.
