United Netherlands (UNL)
The United Netherlands is located between the Allied German States in the east, France in the south and the Saar-Lorraine-Luxembourg Special Administrative Zone (the SOX-zone) in the south-west. The UNL in the west has a long coastline of the North Sea.
The United Netherlands consists of the Netherlands and Flanders, once the Dutch-speaking part of Belgium. The UNL is part of a region called the Low Countries, which also includes Wallonia (once the French-speaking part of Belgium).
