Mongolia is, according to Wikipedia, divided into 21 aimags (provinces; pl. aymguud), which are in turn divided into 329 somons (districts). The capital Ulaanbaatar is administrated separately as a khot (municipality) with provincial status.
According to http://www.statoids.com/umn.html , Mongolia is divided into 18 aimags and four hotuud (municipalities; sing. hot).
