Entry definition

Limbabwe etymology {{blend}}.
proper noun: {{nl-proper noun}}
  1. (usually, pejorative) Limburg.
This word is used mostly disparagingly when trying to distance Limburg from the rest of the country (Netherlands or Belgium), due to its remote location relative to the economic centers of those countries and its supposed corruptness. However, the term is also used by Limburgers themselves to add an exotic touch to the name.
