Belgium

From Heterodontosaurus Balls

Belgium is a country located in Western Europe. He always tried to act peaceful and neutral, however it never works and he has been an early victim of both World Wars. He is also the home of many delicious foods, like waffles and French fries. He gets irritated whenever people think that French fries are invented by France or the USA.

History[edit | edit source]

In 1830, Belgium broke away from the Dutch, declaring itself as a new kingdom. A year later, Belgium adopts a progressive constitution, creating a constitutional monarchy with a parliament and strong protections for individual liberties.

Belgium transformed into an industrial center in the 19th century, doing lots of coal mining and steel production.

Belgium exploited Congo in 1885 and officially colonized in 1908. Belgium persecuted natives in the colony, with brutal and ruthless tactics. But this was faced with instant karma as in both World Wars, Belgium was one of the first to fell to Germany, hence the nickname, “Europe’s speed bump”.

In the 1960s, Belgium granted independence to his colonies.

After WWII, Belgium became one of the founding members for the European Union.

Waffles[edit | edit source]

Belgian waffles, renowned for their light, airy texture and deep pockets, are a beloved culinary delight originating from Belgium. Unlike traditional American waffles, Belgian waffles are typically made with a yeast-leavened batter, which gives them a fluffier and crispier texture. These waffles are often enjoyed as a sweet treat, generously topped with whipped cream, fresh berries, powdered sugar, and sometimes drizzled with chocolate or maple syrup.
