Flevoland, Netherlands

(The newest province in the Netherlands, all of which is less than 30', and much of it is below sea level on reclaimed land from the Zuiderzee. There is a whacky proposal to build a hollow 6500' mountain for skiing, cyclist training, and tourism. But being hollow it would probably be recognized as a building rather than a mountain.)
