>>>Are you saying that Holland is a country>>(equipped with own
king and currency)>>and the Netherlands is a section of Europe>>that
Dutch are the people and the language>>
Yes, like the French are the people and the language also.
>>>Because the age old question is why aren't they called Hollanders<<<
I guess because the language spoken and the names of the people are linked sometimes as in Italians speak Italian, the English speak English, the Greeks speak Greek and the Dutch speak Dutch.
