With an area of 30,528 km² it is about three-fourths the size of the Netherlands or about the size of the U.S. state of Maryland.

Belgium is divided into three regions: Dutch-speaking Flanders in the north, francophone Wallonia in the south and Brussels, the bilingual capital, where French and Dutch share official status. There is also a small German-speaking minority in the eastern part of the country.

Belgium is famous for its chocolate, waffles, fries, beer and the appropriate beer glassware, Tintin (comic books), billiard balls and Brussels sprout. The city of Spa, the famed site of healing cold springs has become eponymous with any place having a natural water source that is believed to possess special health-giving properties. The first Beauty pageant in the world was held at Spa on 19 September 1888.
