holland is what most ppl from outside and inside the netherlands call the netherlands (becaus there is where most of the country and the busness is located in the north and zuid of holland)

however the netherlands consist of 13 states (for lack of a better word) and calling anyone outside of north or zuid holland a 'hollander' can be seen as a insult

and yes holland is know for the legal weed, pot and ho`s and also it mostly freethinking way of doing things.

the dutch and dutch is not german and too call a dutch(wo)man a german will not be taken kindly by most
no example too give after this chat about holland

Common misconception. Holland is what many people (including some native Dutch) call The Netherlands. Holland, however is a province of The Netherlands, where the capital Amsterdam happens to be.

We speak Dutch in The Netherlands, so in Holland too.

I don't live in Holland, I live in The Netherlands.

Holland is a rare name for girls. Hollands will usually have a great taste in music and are incredibly talented artists, and also enjoy drinking tea while watching Christmas lights. If you know a girl named Holland, she is probably the most amazing and gorgeous girl you know, so don't forget about her!
"Man isn't Holland amazing?"
"Obviously, she's Holland."

The Netherlands is a small country, but very important.
It Has 2 Large Cities: Amsterdam and Rotterdam. Rotterdam is one of the largest ports in the world. This has to be so, because the Dutch Economy relies on it.

The official langauge is Dutch. There are also regions where other dialects are spoken.

The country consists of 12 provinces, who all have there own capital. One province Flevoland, was first in the sea, but was dug out later.

Most people think all Dutch people hate germans, but that is not true. Most Dutch people feel absolutely no hatred against the Germans.

Good things that come from Holland are: The Beer, Phillips, Soccer clubs, video games, movie directors, cheese and tulips.

In The Netherlands, Hasj is legal. This worries many people, but it is handled well. Also Prostitution is legal.
The Legal age to drink is 16, to drive is 17.

The Immigrants, can come to the Netherlands, But are mostly treated as second-class people.

Basically you can read everything what Italiano1207 says, and believe the Opposite. He probaply is 12 years old.
