Due to China's large population and vast area, the administrative divisions of China have consisted of several levels since ancient times. The constitution of China provides for three de jure levels of government. Currently, however, there are five practical (de facto) levels of local government: the province, prefecture, county, township, and village.
Each of the levels (except "special administrative regions") correspond to a level in the Civil service of the People's Republic of China. There are 22 provinces, 1 claimed province, 5 Autonomous regions and 4 municipalities directly under the central government.
