The Netherlands stays the same as in our timeline until the second Anglo-Dutch war. The Dutch won the war and kept New Holland but also annexed Suriname and Guyana.
After defeat of the British, they became a less prominent colonist. The Dutch began colonizing the west up to the border of Louisiana. They divided the land in four provinces: New Holland, Severijk (named after Sweden, because it was Sweden's colony in the past) Westland (now called Flaminïe, after Flanders) and Niewegen (after New England)
After this Dutch economy thrived. They have grown to be a superpower.
events after the colonization era:
- 1955- UKN made a union with Japan to protect it from the then communist China. UKN gave Japan weapons and food, so it could defend against the communist forces. Japan was defended from communism and the union was dissolved.
- 2014- After Belgium split up, Flanders was economically unstable. it joined the UKN.
- 2015- Westland was renamed to Flaminïe because of Belgium joining the UKN
Netherlands and Dutch America have the same architectural style. small brick houses. Windmills are littered throughout both. Dutch are stingy and kind of harsh for outsiders, because they don't like to sugarcoat. they will say to you anything they want. There aren't many big cities in both the Netherlands or Dutch America. small towns are everywhere.
Aruba, Curacao and Sint Maarten each got their own cultural differences, but they are very different from the other countries in the UKN
