Curaçao and Dependenciesball was a colonyball of the Netherlands-icon Netherlandsball in the Caribbeans. It was constitued of the islandballs of Curacao-icon CuracaoballAruba-icon Arubaball , Bonaire-icon BonaireballSaba-icon SababallSint Eustatius-icon Sint Eustatiusball and Sint Maarten-icon Sint Maartenball​​​.


Curaçao and Dependenciesball were a group of 3-icon 3ball discovered by Spanish-Empire-icon Spanish Empireball. After breaking free from the Spanish, Dutch Republic-icon Dutch Republicball took them and established them under the influence of the Dutch West India Company-icon Dutch West India Companyball.

It wasn't until the Dutch Empire-icon United Kingdom of the Netherlandsball came to be in 1815, that the islandballs were reorganized into the clays of Curaçao and Dependenciesball (Curacao-icon CuracaoballAruba-icon Arubaball and Bonaire-icon Bonaireball) and Sint Eustatius and Dependencies-icon Sint Eustatius and Dependenciesball (Sint Eustatius-icon Sint EustatiusballSint Maarten-icon Sint Maartenball​​​ and Saba-icon Sababall).

As a way of being more efficient, both dependenciesball were merged with Dutch Suriname-icon Dutch Surinameball in 1828. But the union ended up being problematic and was partially reverted in 1845, with the clay of Sint Eustatius and Dependencies-icon Sint Eustatius and Dependenciesball now being part of Curaçao and Dependenciesball.

Curaçao and Dependenciesball was then directly succeeded by Netherlands Antilles-icon Netherlands Antillesball in 1954, ending its status as a colony to become a constituent countryball as part of the Netherlands-icon United Kingdom of the Netherlands.
