Norway is divided into nineteen first-level administrative regions known as fylker and 430 second-level kommuner. The fylke is the intermediate administration between state and municipality. The King is represented in every county by a Fylkesmann.
The counties of Norway are:
Møre og Romsdal
Sogn og Fjordane
There are 96 settlements with city status in Norway. In most cases, the city borders are coterminous with the borders of their respective municipalities. Often, Norwegian city municipalities include large non-built up areas; for example, Oslo municipality contains large forests, located north and south-east of the city, and over half of Bergen municipality consists of mountaineous areas. The ten largest municipalities with city status in Norway are (as of 1 January 2008): Sandvika in Bærum municipality declared itself a city in 2003, but the "city border" of Sandvika is usually not considered to be coterminous with the municipality border. As Sandvika and most of Bærum in general is included in the Oslo urban area, as defined by Statistics Norway, its population is not possible to estimate.
Norway also has two integral overseas territories, Jan Mayen and Svalbard. There are also three dependencies in the South Pacific, Bouvet Island, Peter I Island and Queen Maud Land.
