The central government may create (or abolish) administrative divisions (sub-national units). Such units exercise only the powers that the central government chooses to delegate. Although political power may be delegated ...

    The map for Europe shows Cyprus as a con-federal state which in other parts of the article is said to be unitary. Of course, Cyprus is a unitary state as it is clear from its respective page.--Κλειδοκράτωρ (talk) 20:12, 17 May 2020 (UTC)

    Why isn't India listed as a unitary state? While it may be a Union of states , the "Central" gevernment has much authority over the states, it appoints the governors, can split, merge or eradicate the states and change their status at will. Note the automatic inclusion of the princely states into the Union at Independence. Was this a foregone conclusion or a fait accompli? --, 1 Oct 2004 (UTC)

    I'm not sure that it's right to describe the Scottish parliament as an assembly. I wonder if it's also of interest that Scotland is a different jurisdiction from the rest of the UK. I wonder if Scotland's parliament and the jurisdiction make the UK, in some respects at least, a federation. No because the Scottish parliament can be suspended at any time by the national government. Mindstar16:54, 14 December 2005 (UTC) 1. The UK Parliament is an assembly too. The French Parliament is named the National Assembly of France. The UK is a partially federal system, although not under the terms of this article, which is all about where the power lies constitutionally. This makes it a little difficult to classify the UK, given that we have an unwritten constitution. The legislation establishing the Scottish Parliament was passed by Westminster, and states that Westminster is supreme - but the proposals and natural authority for the Scottish Parliament came from the Scottish Co...

    In the map Spain and Portugal appear as unitary states but in the list they are not mentioned. Why does this happen? Are they or not unitary states? Sorry for my english (I am learning) --Robotico12:30, 26 February 2006 (UTC) 1. Spain is de jure unitary but de facto federal. In other words, its constitution and laws say it's a unitary state, but in practice some subnational governments have so much power that they can be compared to similar entities in real federal states. As far as I know, of course. Wouter Lievens09:49, 2 June 2006 (UTC) 1. 1.1. I don't think it's appropriate that Spain be on the list at all. From what I can tell Spain's constitution talks about the unity of Spain, but expressly refers to "self-government" for "autonomous communities." In fact, isn't Spain famous for being one of the least centralized states in Europe? (talk) 16:48, 18 June 2008 (UTC) 1. 1.1. 1.1.1. I feel it hard to classify Spain into either unitary or federal. I wouldn't say it's...

    Suggest merge of Unitary System into Unitary state. Roughly the same content in both. --John Nagle15:26, 4 April 2006 (UTC) I'm removing the line saying that China is the "greatest unitary state in the world".Don't know if this is meant to mean most populus, largest land size, or what... No need for it even if the meaning is this.

    The article says 1. Some countries are hybrids between the federal and unitary models. An example of this would be Australia, which is federal with respect to the six states (New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria and Western Australia) that have their own constitutional existence, but unitary with respect to the two mainland territories (the Northern Territory and the Australian Capital Territory), whose governments exercise similar powers to the states but by virtue of delegation of powers from the national government. However, especially historically but today as well, its not uncommon for federations to have some territories under the direct control of the federal government. Witness the US and Canada for example. The main reasons for this are: external territories, e.g. islands, with limited population (e.g. Australia-yes, e.g. Norfolk Island, but US-yes as well, e.g. Guam, American Samoa); districts that host the national capital (Australia-yes:ACT,US...

    I'm sorry but my English is that good, but after what I've read and understood, I'm not sure that Norway is a Unitary state. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by T.Stokke (talk • contribs) 23:10, 16 March 2007 (UTC).

    "Myanmar claimed to adopt Federation,but in fact Unitary System under military dictatorship" I am sympathetic to the sentiment but I don't think it is factually accurate. Myanmar is indeed a miliatary dictatorship with a high degree of centralisation. I don't think there is a claim of a being a Federation. It does claim to be a Union. Myanmar does not have an active constitution since the military takeover of 1988. The constitution that existed before was the 1974 Constitution of the Socialist Republic of the Union of Burma. This constitution stated a 'Union'. This was clearly a unitary state in the same way as the Union of South Africa was (when it was a Commonwealth Realm within the British Commonwealth). The military-led goverment of Ne Win, which promulgated the 1974 constitution was not Federalist. In fact the 1962 coup that brought Ne Win to power was in part to pre-empt a Federation. There never was a claim by either the Ne Win-led socialist regime or the current military jun...

    Are Angola and Belarus unitary or federal states? Currently they feathure in neither list. /Lokal_Profil13:14, 9 September 2007 (UTC) 1. Azerbaijan and Belize also aren't in either list. /Lokal_Profil13:18, 9 September 2007 (UTC)

    Saint Kitts and Nevis is both on the federation list and the unitary states list. /Lokal_Profil01:51, 14 September 2007 (UTC) 1. Fixed, now removed (together with Iraq) from the federation list. /Lokal_Profil11:40, 14 September 2007 (UTC)
