Useful Information About Belgium

Belgium consists of two completely different nations whose only thing in common was accidental geographical proximity, and were not wanted by their more successful Dutch and French neighbours. Yet they managed to stick together since 1830; the only issue threatening this marriage is the fact that the only Belgian Eurovision winner, Sandra Kim with "J'aime la Vie" in 1986, represented the part that doesn't even care, while Eurovision-enthusiastic Flanders has never made the top 5. Belgium is yet to qualify from the semifinal.
