The Netherlands 'Antilles' (Dutch: Nederlandse Antillen; Papiamentu: Antia Hulandes) is a sovereign federal monarchy in the Caribbean, successor state of the Netherlands.
After contact was lost with the mainland Netherlands, little politically changed.

At the same time, it began stronger control over the economy, whilst devolving many powers.
The Netherlands Antilles is made up of seven states:
The Netherlands Antilles has good relations with both the French Community and the West Indies Federation. They also claim the Netherlands as a part of the Republic, and they are recognized as the successor state of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
