Synonyms of "Netherlands" and their differences

Q: В чем разница между how close to Netherlands и how close to the Netherlands ?
A: The Netherlands are an exception. Most countries in English are referred to without “the” in their name. “Netherlands” was originally just a compound word, meaning “low lands” (they were called this because of their low elevation).
Basically, a long time ago, they were for all intensive purposes called “the Lowlands”, and it would sound strange if you said “I am close to Lowlands” because lowlands is just a common noun.

Anyway, you probably didn’t care for a history lesson lol but basically the first one is wrong and the second one is correct. :)
