For example, if the vpn servers are located in Australia.

Can the vpn server still provide another country's ip address ( for example Netherlands) and be subjected to Netherland's internet restriction laws ?

If you have your server in Australia and a VPN connection somewhere is Netherlands, you could configure your server and VPN to use the internet from the Netherlands site. If you look at your WAN ip from the Australia Server it will show the Netherlands IP.
But why not host it directly?

I don't know about the laws so for that part you might need to ask a lawyer.

Oh I see.. Actually I am not the one hosting it. I am interested in signing up for a VPN, but wanted to seek more clarification regarding their server locations.

Like for example, I stay in Australia, definitely it is better to get a VPN provider which has servers in Australia for better speeds. But if the server in Australia is still subjected by Australia internet laws, there is no point in getting a VPN server there.
