Long Description:
Hague is a small rural town in Saskatchewan, Canada, located approximately 47 kilometers north of Saskatoon. It was established in the late nineteenth century as a Mennonite community farming the fertile land in the area.

Hague is growing due to its relatively low cost of living compared to Saskatoon. However, the town's connection to the farming community remains strong.

Hague has a school, arena (with hockey and curling), grocery store, hardware store, Credit Union, post office, two restaurants, three gas stations, and a vehicle dealership named Valley Ford. Construction on Highway 11 North was completed July 2011, twinning the Highway between Hague and Saskatoon.

Population: 878
Land area: 1.08 km2 (0.42 sq mi)
Population density: 815.5/km2 (2,112/sq mi)

**********************************************************************

The Hague is the seat of government in the Netherlands, and the capital city of the province of South Holland. With a population just over 500,000 inhabitants (as of 1 November 2012) and more than one million inhabitants including the suburbs, it is the third-largest city of the Netherlands, after Amsterdam and Rotterdam. The combined urban area of The Hague and Rotterdam, with a population of approximately 2.9 million, is the 206th-largest urban area in the world and the most populous in the country. Located in the west of the Netherlands, The Hague is in the centre of the Haaglanden conurbation and lies at the southwest corner of the larger Randstad conurbation.

The Hague is the seat of the Dutch government and parliament, the Supreme Court, and the Council of State, but the city is not the capital of the Netherlands which constitutionally is Amsterdam. King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands plans to live at Huis ten Bosch and works at Noordeinde Palace in The Hague, together with Queen Máxima. Most foreign embassies in the Netherlands and 150 international organisations are located in the city, including the International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Court, which makes The Hague one of the major cities hosting the United Nations, along with New York, Brussels, Geneva, Bonn, Vienna, Tokyo and Nairobi.
