Contrary to popular belief, the term "Holland" is not actually the name of the whole country, but the name of two of the twelve provinces of The Netherlands. The Netherlands consists of 19 subdivisions, of three sub-categories: 12 provinces in the mainland, 3 special municipalities and 4 countries (the latter two are in the Caribbean).

Each of the provinces have three parts of their own government: the States-Provincial (Provinciale Staten), the Provincial-Executive (Gedeputeerde Staten) and the King's Commissioner (Commissaris van de Koning).
