"The Gateway to Britain". The Spanish Netherlands or "Belgium" is a piece of land roughly twice the size of The Netherlands, right below it. Before France seceded to The Spanish Empire, King Spartan Petalbee had intended to launch a massive invasion force from The Spanish Netherlands into England and claim the British Isles for Spain. Of course, this was before Great Britain was even a unified nation, meaning the invasion would be much easier. In 1700, Petalbee called his army in The Spanish Netherlands back to Spain to help protect the homeland from Clemente's rebellion.
