The Netherlands are one of the founding members of the EU. They have a population of about 16.4 million inhabitants at a relative small size. Due to the high GDP per capita, the Netherlands are a large economic power in the world. The Dutch economic activity rate and unemployment rate are quite good.

The life expectancy is quite high. This may be a result of the excellent drinking water and sanitation conditions in the country. Furthermore, the AIDS rate is quite low, while the GHG emissions on a per capita basis are high. The school life expectancy is very long, while the tertiary education enrolment rate is still far away from the leading countries in that area.
