I'm originallly from the Netherlands, which has twelve provinces that are divided in municipalities. There are regular elections for the parliaments of the provinces ('Provincial Estates') and the members of these parliaments elect the members of the First Chamber of Parliament (Senate) shortly after they take office. (The Second Chamber of Parliament (House of Representatives) is elected directly by the people)
Currently I'm living in Luxembourg (the Grand Duchy, not the Belgian province mentioned by Meylandt below :) ), which despite its small size is subdivided in twelve cantons, which are divided in municipalities. There used to be another level between the national level and the cantons in the form of three districts, which were however abolished in 2015 (their borders are however still shown on Google Maps). The districts and cantons were/are mainly geographical divisions and didn't/don't have governmental structures. There are elections for the (unicameral) national parliament, but these make use of four electoral districts (yet another subdivision) which each represent a certain amount of seats in parliament.

In Belgium, under the federal level we have regions (gewesten in Dutch, don't know their name in French) communities (gemeenschappen) and provinces (provincies).
The regions are Flanders, Wallonia and the Capital Region of Brussels (which is clearly a really catchy name). Those are defined by the province borders, Flanders containing West- and East-Flanders, Antwerp, Limburg and Felmish Brabant, while Wallonia has Hainaut, Liège, Namur, Luxembourg and Walloon Brabant. Brussels is it's own thing, although entirely contained withing Flemish Brabant.
Communities are language based. There is a Flemish, French and German speaking community.
The federal level isn't really superior to the regions or communities. They are equal and all responsible for their own thing, which creates a clusterfrick of six governments (Flemish region and community are the same).

|The Federation of Hangates of Athara Magarat|
As always, I am still looking for big internationals who wish to have Magarati companies as their subsidiaries and smaller businesses who could become subsidiaries of bigger Magarati companies.
Athara Magarat is a sovereign state in Central Argus. After the end of the 30th Parallel War, the Magarati nation rapidly developed into an advanced economy while building an extensive welfare state, resulting in widespread prosperity and one of the highest per capita incomes in the Isles. Apart from Negarakita, Miklania, Michigonia, Norstham and Ostehaar; the Athara Magarati Federation of Hangates is the only other nation-state in the Isles to have a per capita income exceeding $30,000. Athara Magarat is a top performer in numerous metrics of national performance, including education, economic competitiveness, civil liberties, quality of life, and human development.
Listed below are the companies headquartered in or originating from Athara Magarat in alphabetical order.
001: Nagesia-Dhari Limited
Nagesia-Dhari Limited is a Isles-wide company that provides fiber-based products and solutions such as decor paper, filters, release liners, abrasive backings, non-woven fabrics, electro-technical paper, glass fiber materials, food packaging and labeling, tape, medical fiber materials and solutions for medical diagnostics. More than 90 percent of Nagesia-Dhari's products are made from renewable fibers.
Nagesia-Dhari Limited is a result of a merger between Nagesia Corporation and Dhari Limited. The merger took place in the spring of 2017.
Nagesia-Dhari Limited operates in Mesder, Argus and Gael as well as in Southern Sea region. Most production sites are located in various nations of Mesder, Argus and Gael. The head office is currently in Dhulabari, Athara Magarat, but the company has announced moving all head office activities to Myagdi Island in the future.
Nagesia-Dhari Limited's customers represent several industries, including automotive, furniture, construction, healthcare and life science, food and beverage and energy sectors.
The company has approximately 6,200 employees Isles-wide and 41 production or converting facilities in 14 countries. It also has a global network of sales offices. In 2017, the company's net sales were 2.5 billion.
The creation of the Dhari paper mill in 1862 was due to a chance meeting of two eminent gentlemen: Lasith Dhari, an inventor and industrialist from Dhulabari (then in Santhal Hangate; now part of Koch Hangate) and Lepmuhang Hangun, a prominent financer, publisher and politician. Dhari became one of the most innovative paper producers in the Isles, delivering first-class products to an Isles-wide customer base.
Nagesia has its roots in Antim Nagesia, was one of the most prominent 19th century businessmen in the then Santhal Hangate of the Khas-Kirat Empire. The company was founded in 1851 and timber trading, shipping and sawmill operations started to grow. Later the company focused on pulp, paper and timber production and machinery, later expanding to glassworks.
By the beginning of the 1930s, Nagesia had grown into the newly-established Empire of Magarat's largest industrial conglomerate.
The outbreak of the Imperial War led the company to convert much of its production to support the Empire of Magarat's war effort.
During the 1980s, Nagesia left the newsprint and magazine paper market and focused its operations on specialty papers. One of the most profound decisions in Magarati industrial history was made in 1987, when Nagesia unexpectedly sold its paper-producing units. Leaving newsprint production increased the relative value of Nagesia's specialty paper and engineering units.
In the 1990s, Nagesia expanded its focus to include non-woven products. In 1996, Nagesia Corporation established the Nagesia Paper Group to encompass the company's fiber-based materials operations.
In 2016, Nagesia Corporation and Dhari Limited announced a plan merge the two companies.
The completion of the merger of Nagesia Corporation with Dhari Limited was registered with the Athara Magarati Trade Register on 1 April, 2017. Following the completion of the merger, the name of the combined company has changed to Nagesia-Dhari Limited.
Today, Nagesia-Dhari Limited is among the largest Magarati companies. The Nagesia family are still significant shareholders in the Nagesia-Dhari Limited.

This seems like an interesting question.
I live in the Philippines. We currently have 81 provinces, turning 83 in 2020 (I know it's a lot). Each province is ruled by a governor. The provinces are grouped into 17 regions, 14 of them are assigned a number based on their geographic location starting from the North to the South. The other 3 are the CAR (Cordillera Administrative Region), NCR (National Capital Region), and the BARMM (Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao). The NCR is composed of 16 cities, who act independently, and 1 municipality. The regions don't have power. They serve more of a demographic purpose rather than a political entity.
Provinces are divided into cities and municipalities. Their differences are more on an economic level. Cities are either richer, seat of the local government, or proclaimed a city through a law. Our current number for cities is at 145, while we have 1,489 municipalities. We have 3 types of cities, HUC (Highly Urbanized Cities), ICC (Independent Component Cities), and CC (Component Cities). HUCs and ICCs function independently. They are excluded from voting in the province they are located on. There are exceptions to these but this would be very long.
Each municipality and city are subdivided into barangays. The Philippines has a total of 42,029 barangays, each governed by a barangay captain. Barangays have executive, legislative, and judicial powers. They are a result of Philippine history, where before the Spanish arrived, groups of people, mainly families. were classified into a barangay. These barangays eventually evolved into barrios when the Spanish came and reverted back to barangays when we got our independence.

Who thinks the integration of European nation states should happen? Should they lose national sovereignty and create a European Army or not? (Countries that are members of the European Union and excluding the United Kingdom)
|The Dominion of Nhoor|
There are many ways integration can happen. Personally I don't think a US model will be the final result. It would help already if the member states' governments wouldn't work against the EU and blame it for everything that goes wrong whereas what goes wrong is often (indirectly) the member states' fault.
A combined European army could be practical, but I'd say within NATO, not as a replacement of NATO.

What language do you use, which country’s weapons and arms manufacturers get the contracts, who’sorganization gets used. Which generals and officers have to undergo retraining to fit new tactics. Who’s existing military equipment gets sold off. Creating one army out of a dozen, with at four countries being self equipping, without angering anybody, impossible.

Well, we are not Wonder Woman, so deciding all this will take time and effort (as everything involving the EU, but it is a unique project so we have to invent wheels all the time). The language may be English as that is the one understood by most EU citizens but for the rest things may be compromised or newly invented (where I somehow expect the most resistance from the French). But you never know how a cow may catch a hare!
