Belgium was the first continental European country to undergo the Industrial Revolution, and featured the first continental railway and one of the first European skyscrapers. Its location at the heart of a highly industrialized region helped make it the world's 15th largest trading nation in 2007. GDP per capita is $46,878, Belgium features the densest railway network of the world, the densest road network of the world, the busiest railway tunnel in the world an the Port of Antwerp is second largest in Europe, etc. The downside is that Belgium’s a very polluted area for West-European standards and open space is scarce, since urban planning hasn’t really been enforced since the late 20th century.
