Also, Belgium is one of the founding members of European Union and is house to the EU headquarters. Belgium is house to around 11 million people with Dutch, French and German as the official languages. It is a Federal Parliamentary Constitutional Monarchy with Albert II as the King and Elio Di Rupo as the Prime Minister. Belgium declared independence from Netherlands on the 21st July of the year 1831.
