Historically speaking, I'd exchange Germany for... well... just about anyone else. Historically, mind you. Like between 1914 and 1945.

They're ok now though.

What do you guys think? Worse or better than current location of the Netherlands?
Most of them are worse.The current location of the Netherlands is perfect for now,awful between 1914 to 1945 though.

For the first one(South of France),Netherlands is gonna have hardcore migration problem(from Africa).

For the second one(Between Taiwan and Japan),you're gonna have earthquakes and typhoons.

For the third one(east of Japan),well I guess this is alright.

For the fourth one(west of California and Meixco),I guess this is alright.

For the fifth one(middle of SE Asia),migration problem again since most of the surrounding countries are really poor compare to Netherlands

For the sixth one(west of San Francisco),I guess this is alright.

For the seventh one(between Taiwan and HK),watch out for China because they're gonna say Netherlands is part of it.

Finally(between Korea and Japan),stuck in the middle of hatred,idk.

It (my country) could make a natural bridge between South Korea and Japan
Bet it would make a very popular vacation spot in the weekends for the Koreans and Japanese since marijuana is very illegal in those countries.

We worked very well with the Japanese before, We were the only European country for like 200 years the Japanese wanted to do business with, maybe its because we had good manners and didn't try to convert the local population to christianity or islam.

Nagasaki a couple hundred years ago...

Google "Shimabara Rebellion". The Netherlands had helped the Japanese to massacre 27000 Japanese Christians. Other European nations refused to do so and consequently had to leave the country.

The Japanese did most of the killing, we just provided them with gunpowder and cannons.

In a heartbeat, I would cross the Pyrenees and settle down in Spain (not the Catalan part, though)
