In New Netherland, was the Dutch West India Company a government?

The name sounds like they were just a private company, but apparently they had governors? And they made other settlers swear allegiance to the Dutch? Also they could arrest people and start wars? That sounds kind of government-like. What were they?

Why doesn’t anyone suspect the Dutch West India Company?

There has been lots of talk of Templars, who existed hundreds of years earlier than the money pit (1100s) or solitary people like Bacon or Drake being responsible, but why no talk of the enormous international trading company that had projects going in the same region as Oak Island in the 1600s?

No clue what they would want to bury, but they definitely had the resources, manpower and technical skills required for a construction project of that magnitude.

They also employed privateers like Piet Heyn who captured the Spanish silver fleet, as well as other valuable goods from central and South American Spanish colonies. He had access to lots of valuable stuff that needed protection, as well as lots of coconut fiber from the Caribbean.

[EVENT] The Dutch West India Company

King Janssen today attended the grand opening of the headquarters of the newly-founded Dutch West India Company - the state-headed organisation that controls the flow of trade from the Dutch holdings in the West Indies. Items that fall under the WIC's jurisdiction include strawberries, avocado, and pineapple. Additionally, hemp fiber is to be grown en masse - given its legal status in the Netherlands. It is hoped that other countries, seeing the potential uses of hemp, will begin to adopt it. King Janssen had this to say,

"I am honored that my first act as King of the Netherlands is to open modern trade with the West Indies. I hope this will prove to be a prosperous partnership - on the level of the East India Company of old. We welcome trade with our European brethren, and all those who would wish to conduct such an agreement. Truly, this is a net benefit for the Dutch people."

Was there ever a company prior to 1900 that was as influential as the Dutch West India Company?

Was there a company that had the reach and control that the DWIC had? In terms of economics, physical trade, or government lobbying.
