An administrative division, administrative unit, administrative entity or country subdivision (or, sometimes, geopolitical division or subnational entity) is a portion of a country or other region delineated for the purpose of administration.

The subdivisions of England constitute a hierarchy of administrative divisions and non-administrative ceremonial areas. Overall, England is divided into nine regions and 48 ceremonial counties, although these have only a limited role in public policy. For the purposes of local government, the country is divided into counties, districts and parishes. In some areas, counties and districts form a two-tier administrative structure, while in others they are combined under a unitary authority. Parishes cover only part of England.

Albania is divided into 12 administrative counties or prefectures (Albanian: qark or prefekturë) and 373 municipalities (Albanian: bashki or komunë). 72 municipalities have city status (Albanian: qytet). There are overall 2980 villages/communities (Albanian: fshat) in all Albania. Each district has its council which is composed of a number of municipalities. In 2000, districts were abolished and counties re-established. The municipalities are the first level of local governance, responsible for local needs and law enforcement. A new administrative division reform will take effect in June 2015 whereby Municipalities will be reduced to 61 in total. As part of the reform, major town centers in Albania are being physically redesigned and façades painted to reflect a more Mediterranean look.
