Sint Maarten (or Saint Martin) is the name of the territory of the southern half of the island of St. Martin. It belongs to the Netherlands.

The Island area of St. Martin (Dutch: Eilandgebied Sint Maarten) was part of the Netherlands Antilles, until the Antilles was dissolved in October 2010, when Sint Maarten became a "country" ("land") within the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The Government of the Netherlands is responsible for defence, foreign affairs and nationality law. Although part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands the territory of Sint Maarten is not part of the European Union; however, its people are citizens of the European Union.
