wonen in Nederland
Explanation:
An alternative is "leven in Nederland". The difference is that "wonen" implies that you actually have an address in the country, while "leven" is what you do anywhere you go as long as you are breathing.... So if the reader is expected to end up spending a reasonable amount of time in the coutnry "wonen" would be the way to go.
