Netherlands New Guineaball, also known as Dutch New Guineaball was a colony of Dutch Empire-icon.png Dutch Empireball.


Netherlands New Guineaball was born as a 7-icon.png 7ball. Before the Dutch arrived in the land, there was no ruler or government who had control of the land, meaning that it was very easy for the Dutch to take over and incorporate into the Dutch East Indies-icon.png Dutch East Indiesball. The only country which had the ability to hold any opposition at all was the Sultanate of Tidoreball, which agreed to help with the Dutch, leaving any other opposition to dutch control over West Papua to be nonexistent.
While the Dutch were establishing control over West Papua and conquering the locals, the UK and Germany were doing the same on the Eastern side which the Dutch never seized. Once The Dutch realized this, they decided that they had to come up with a way that the British New Guinea-icon.png British and German New Guinea-icon.png German occupations could coexist without any potential conflict. In the end, it was agreed upon that the 141st meridian would be the dividing point between the Dutch colonies from the German (northeastern new guinea) occupation and the British (southeastern New guinea) occupations. This is why there is a straight line dividing Papua New Guinea-icon.png Papua New Guineaball and Indonesia-icon.png Indonesiaball.
