Question:

If federalism works only in big countries, why did Belgium adopt it?

Belgium adopted federalism because of its diversity. Even though it is a small country, it has a diverse population made up of multilingual groups. These linguistic groups have their own interests which might lead to social conflict. Belgium adopted a federal system of power sharing to avoid possible social conflict and political instability.
