Officially titled 'Democratic People's Republic of Korea'.
North Korea is divided into nine provinces, two directly-governed cities, and three special administrative divisions. On the second-level divisions, there are cities, counties, wards, and districts.
The three-level administrative system used in North Korea was first established in 1952, as part of a massive restructuring of local government. Previously, the country had used a multi-level system similar to that still used in South Korea.
The three special administrative regions were all created in 2002 for the development of collaborative ventures with South Korea and other countries.
