| Country Information
Belgium is a country in Europe.
When Lisa Simpsons visits the new comic book store, Coolsville, she discovers a shelf with Astérix and Tintin comics. As she reads a comic book, Tintin mentions that they have to save the Belgian ambassador.
When the Simpsons traveled to Ireland, Lisa mentioned that Ireland is on the forefront of Europe's "tech-boom". Bart mockingly added "In your face, Belgium!", whereupon Marge threatened Bart by saying "If you hate Belgium so much, maybe I should take your Tintins away!" This scared Bart, who clutched a copy of the book The Crab with the Golden Claws, promising he'll be good.
