WWII era

I’m speaking about the local puppet government.

In countries where the German Army remained occupiers even after conquest (as opposed to most conquered nations, where the troops moved on), a local government was still set up, subordinate to the Germans.

A few examples:

• Serbia: the puppet government during most of the war was the “Serbian Government of National Salvation” under Milan Nedić. This was subordinate to the German Army authority, led by the military commander for Serbia.

• Norway: the puppet government during most of the war was the “Norwegian National Government”, famously led by Vidkun Quisling. This was subordinate to the German civil authority, the “Reichscommisariat of Norway” led by Josef Terboven

In the Netherlands, the puppet government for most of the war was led by Anton Mussert, and was subordinate to the German civil authority, the “Reichscommisariat of the Netherlands” led by Arthur Seyes-Inquart.

However, what was the name of Mussert’s Government?

In other words, what is the Dutch equivalent to “Serbian government of National salvation” and “Norwegian National Government”?
