You should try some real Dutch beer. Heineke is just bottled ditchwater. Grolsch is much better
Yeah, the Dutch consider Heineken to be one of the worse beers. Funny that you guys like it though.
here in budapest, we consider Heineken to be one of the more prestigious beers ^^
Why?? you have much better beers in Hungary....
I kinda like Heineken myself, but I'm more of a Guinness man.

Sold? Please. Four frigates up the Hudson and New Netherlands surrenders, without even a little skirmish.
True, they surrendered without a fight because the money/trade had priority on weapons/defense etc (if it sounds familiar, WWII , what can I say we Dutch just like to make money )
Anyway, technically it wasn't sold but at the peace agreement England was allowed to keep the conquered region of New Netherlands and The Netherlands could keep the conquered region of Suriname.
Uti Kalmare stad,
ja där finns det ingen kvast
As for the topic, it would weird playing the Dutch without having a capital in Europe.
Personally, I just destroy the Germans and make a really long Holland. In my current game (no doubt of victory) the Vikings attacked Germany, which made them collapse, and then I attacked Scandinavia, which made them collapse. So I got the Low Countries, Germany, Poland, and Scandinavia to myself. Sistine Chapel kept French culture at bay.
When the US popped, they asked me to DoW England and I did, so I have a nice little European nation. Can't really colonize, though...
BTW, GO STATE PROP!
