Try, right next to Sint Maarten. If nothing else, the name should have tipped you off (Sint Maarten vs. Saint Martin?)

The Netherlands and Holland is not the same! Holland is a part of the Netherlands, but the Netherlands are not a part of Holland.

To refer to the Netherlands as Holland or to call a Nederlander (someone from the Netherlands) a Hollander is akin to calling the USA "New York" or referring to an American as a Gringo. The Dutch consider it a derogatory term.

Do the Dutch consider it a derogatory term though ? The official website for the Netherlands as a tourist destination has the name "Holland.com".

If there'd be a name for me that I wouldn't like, I certainly wouldn't put up a website with exactly that name.

You are absolutely right. OP got confused because it is called "a constituent country within the Kingdom of the Netherlands". However, Sint Maarten is not a sovereign country and while they are autonomous on many internal affairs that doesn't make them independent. The term "country" usually refers to sovereign nations, however if one really wants to call Sint Maarten a country it would have to be "overseas country and territory" (OCT) as this is Sint Maarten's official status.
