Technically it's both. The Queen lives in Amsterdam, but the seat of government is in The Hague, where the Parliment (Binnenhof), and and most of the Government ministries are located. I think most of the embassies are located there as well.

Well, Hailstone a quick check out of QF and AN and their respective regionals shows that Canberra has something like the following rpt flts today:
I can't vouch for the accuracy of the above, there were some discrepancies between some schedules and listed departures, but you get the message - not a lot happens in the way of rpt, and all of it domestic.

Ryadah (sp?) has not even close to the amount of traffic Jeddah does. Most major European airlines fly to Jeddah and not Ryadah. Ryadah also has the most expensive airport terminal in the world along with the most land-area for a single airport.

Practically any African capital (except Cairo and Harare) I would think. Also, I can't imagine that many South American nations have dense air service (how many airlines fly into Asuncion, Paraguay?). Also, wouldn't Pyongyang (North Korea) be somewhat lacking in air service?

The capital city of the Netherlands is Amsterdam, Den Haag is the seat of the government.
Yamoussoukro, Ivory Coast comes to mind - I guess all of that country´s traffic goes through Abidjan.
Similar with Bolivia, whose main intl airport is La Paz, while Sucre is in fact the capital.
What about the new Kazakhstan capital, forgot the name, could it be Astana? But everybody continues to fly to the old one, Almaty.

It holds quite a large domestic market to nearly all parts of Brazil due to its central location. You can fly to nearly any Brazilian city from Brasilia thorugh Varig, TAM, Vasp, Transbrasil(based in Brasilia), Nordeste, Rio-Sul, and many others. I am unaware of any Intl' flights from Brasilia, but I am almost sure that they offer one stop(if not non-stop) service to palces like Buenos Aires, or Santiago, and they do also have one-stop service to Miami, and possibly New York.
TAM Meridional has tried to set up what they call a "hub" in Asuncion, with flights to Buenos Aires, Montevideo, Lima, and Sao Paulo. I think they also fly to other points in Argentina, such as Cordoba and Rosario. Other Int'l carriers at Asuncion include American Airlines(operating 767-300 with direct service to Miami via Sao Paulo), Varig(737 to Sao Paulo, and Rio?), and Aerolineas Argentinas(no info)
