Indonesia consists of 34 provinces, five of which have special status and greater autonomy (Aceh, Jakarta, Yogyakarta, Papua, and West Papua). The provinces are subdivided into regencies (kabupaten) and cities (kota), which are further subdivided into districts (kecamatan or distrik in Papua and West Papua), and again into administrative villages (either desa, kelurahan, kampung, nagari in West Sumatra, or gampong in Aceh).
Western Guinea (also named Papua, formerly known as Irian Jaya), was granted special autonomy status in 2001 and was split into Papua and West Papua in February 2003.
