Question: Could one say: "The Netherlands is altogether flat!" Only asking as idiomatically a lot of English speakers where I'm from would use "altogether" much the same as completely, entirely, or absolutely.

Yes. Altogether = helemaal, volkomen, in het geheel, in alle opzichten, alles samengenomen.
