The physical characteristics of Netherlands are very constant since the beginning and forming of Europe. The land is at 656 feet or 200 meters above ground throughout the Netherlands. The climate style is Marine West Coast and only Marine West Coast. The real excitement of the Netherlands geography is the polders. The Netherlands is one of the more densely populated European areas, so when trying to figure out a way to fit so many people in a very small place of land the Dutch decided to build on the water and by doing so they created Polders(which means to build on water and to adapt). Over ¼ of the Netherlands is water turned to land. The Geographic coordinates of the Netherlands are 52 30 N, 5 45 E, the total area of the Netherlands is 41,526 sq km. The countries surrounding are Belgium and Germany. The Coastline is 451 km. The whole country is mostly lowlands and polders.
What is truly special about the people in the Netherlands is that local traditions are still in effect and this country has many new industrial and innovative technologies, but has still kept it\'s older more well known traditions. When researching this country I thought all that would be present is Amsterdam and fat blonde ladies wearing wooden shoes, but yet those weren’t the only things I found. The Netherlands Kingdom was formed in 1815 (which was what now is the Netherlands with parts of Belgium). It remained neutral in WWI but suffered massive invasions by the Germans in WWII. The Netherlands was a founding member of the EMU and NATO. The Netherlands is currently run mostly by a monarch/democracy.
The Netherlands government allows most drug use, but is starting to crack down on illegal activities. Over population is another issue that is plaguing Netherlands. Prostitution is a big problem along with drug production. The Netherlands has too much of a liberal democracy/monarchy.

The Roots of Judaism and ChristianityThe Roots of Judaism and Christianity (i) Judaism: The Jews are a people who trace their descent from the biblical Israelites and who are united by the religion called Judaism. They are not a race; Jewish identity is a mixture of ethnic, national, and religious elements. An individual may become part of the Jewish people by conversion to Judaism; but a born Jew who rejects Judaism or adopts another religion does not entirely lose his Jewish identity. In biblical times the Jews were divided into
Marx's Ideal SocietyMarx\'s Ideal Society One of the greatest debates of all time has been regarding the issue of the freedom of mankind. The one determining factor, for Marx, it that freedom is linked with class conflict. As a historian, Karl Marx traced the history of mankind by the ways in which the economy operated and the role of classes within the economy. For Marx, the biggest question that needed to be answered was “Who owns freedom?” With this in mind, Marx gives us a solution to both the issues of freedom
Culture & DemocracyCulture & Democracy There may be many ways in which culture can affect political structure of one country or another, yet, arguably the most important way that a country’s culture affects democracy is through political socialization. According to Alexis de Tocqueville and his book Democracy , he defines culture as an ordered set of symbols, and in turn, political culture as a set of values and orientations through which one perceives and reacts to authority. The way that this set of values and o

Anti-FederalistAnti-Federalist PLS201 When the new federal Constitution was introduced in 1787, it met with much dissent. The Constitution was the groundwork for a new government, which would dissolve the existing confederation of states and replace it with a more powerful national government. Naturally, many people feared that this new government would be too powerful and rob the states and individuals of their sovereignty and rights.

However, the US is not a two party system and there have always been third
PeacePeace Peace: it’s wonderful. Everyone likes it as much as the next man, and have none wish to be willfully gloomy at a moment when optimism about the future shape of the world abounds. My thesis in this essay is that we will soon regret the passing of the Cold War. I intend to show that it will not be the by-products of the Cold War — such as the Korean and Vietnam — that we will miss, but the order that it brought to the area of international relations. To be sure, no one will want to replay th
Future Involvement in Foreign AffairsFuture Involvement in Foreign Affairs Since the United States is one of the last remaining super powers of the world, we have the obligation to maintain and support good relations with the smaller and weaker nations throughout the world. We should take full advantage of this authority in several different ways. First the U.S. must focus on investing and trading with those nations who have yet to become economic powers; second, we must implement a consistent foreign policy towards the Middle East

Capitalism and Our SocietyCapitalism and Our Society From the very dawn of intelligent human interaction to the present day, the concept of capitalism has dominated the way we trade goods and acquire wealth. Except for the necessity of a simple communist society in pre-modern times, or the noble humanistic notion of a socialist society, the free market has always been the most efficient way to run the economy once the most basic needs of life have been satisfied. Only during the last several hundred years has the idea of
FascismFascism “To Believe, To Obey, To Combat” -Mussolini Today, for those of us living in a liberal democracy, fascism seems to be an absurd, repulsive and maybe even grotesque form of governmental leadership. Communism had its beginnings in the spirit of the American and French revolutions, with their emphasis on individual liberty and equaling, fascism rejected these 19th-century ideas. Instead it extolled the state as absolute and demanded discipline, devotion to duty, and the subordination of all
Nikolay Alexandrovich Romanov, or Nicholas II, was Nikolay Alexandrovich Romanov, or Nicholas II, was crowned Tsar of Russia on the 26th of May 1894, with great enthusiasm from the majority of the Russian population. It would be the last time that such a ceremony would happen in Russia. This is because 23 years later, on the 15th of March 1917, he would be forced to abdicate and on the 17th of July 1918, while held prisoner by the Bolsheviks, he and the rest of his family were assassinated. During his years of reign, Nicholas firmly addressed h
