Every time you make a succesful trade you will earn more money compared to other countries, which stimulates creating friendly bonds with other countries.

Respected state

Because the Netherlands took a big role in the history of Europe it gains a lot of respects from the other countries, and with that respect it is easier for the Netherlands to establish diplomatic relations.

Outdated military technology

After the 80 years war the Netherlands stopped the research on the military developments. So if you want to research the military you will have to pay more research points.

Protection of the colonies

Th Netherlands holds a lot of values towards the colonies. So when another countries conquers the colonies the morale for the rest of the country drops.
