Some people only really know it for Amsterdam, but The Netherlands is a nation of 12 provinces of which Holland for example, is broken into two provinces, North Holland and South Holland. The official capitol of The Netherlands is in fact Amsterdam. The Hague is the administrative and governmental seat of the country and the capitol city of the South Holland province. The kingdom also includes three overseas territories:  Aruba, Curaçao, and Saint Martin in the Caribbean Sea. It is also one of the busiest countries in the world with almost 16.5 million people residing in the fairly little country.For a complete explanation, please watch the following video:Holland vs. the Netherlands:
