Post-WWII country created by a political union between The Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg, later reformed to a union of 10 states (Friesland, IJsselland, Holland, Flanders [including occupied French territory], Brabant, Hainaut [including occupied French territory], West Limburg, Luxembourg [including occupied German territory], East Limburg [occupied German territory], East Netherlands [occupied German territory])with the capital in Belgium. The thought behind this political union was that the Low Countries needed to have unified military, political, economic, and social ties in order to effectively resist invasion from Germany.
