Area:25,713 km2
Locality type:Country
Other/historical names associated with this locality:Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia; FYR Macedonia


One of the successor states of the former Yugoslavia, from which it declared independence in 1991.

Not to be confused with the Macedonia Department in Greece.

Macedonia is divided into statistical regions which, however, exist solely for legal and statistical purposes.
In August 2004, the Republic of Macedonia was reorganised into 84 municipalities. Most of the current municipalities were unaltered or merely amalgamated from the previous 123 municipalities established in September 1996; others were consolidated and their borders changed.
