Names countries use for their First-level subdivisions pro

typ in all the names countries use for their First-level subdivisions in their native language using the latin alphabet.
For example: First-level subdivisions in Albania are called qarqe, but First-level subdivisions in Brunei are called daerah
Some countries like China use multiple names for their first-level Subdivisions. You need to name them all for the purpose of this quiz.
Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_administrative_divisions_by_country
the answers may be a bit different from the ALL first level subdivions of the world on a map quiz because I used a different source.

I like the idea but this needs some reworking.

Decide wether you go for the plural or the singular form (no consistency)

BTW For Belgium you should also accept Gewest (Dutch nomenclature for Region)

The plurals are based on the amount of subdivisions that country has. So for example you have to type ''city'' for Uganda because the country only has one first-level subdivision called a city, but you have to type ''cities'' for trinidad and tobago because the country has multiple first-level subdivisions that are called ''cities''. I know it's a bit confusing, but I decided to go with it because it wouldn't make a lot of sense to have plurals for unique administrative entities. for example: in the USA you say states because there are 50 of them, but nobody says federal districts when refering to the capital since there is only one.

for the second point. You are right about the belgian one. I will change the answer to Gewest.

thanks for the constructive feedback :)
