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.

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 concl...
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.

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 mainl...
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 ...
