In most cases, a province and state will be the same thing. There are specfic differences within the contexts of certain countries, but at a high level, they serve the same purpose.

States and provinces are regions designed to organize administrative zones within a country.

A city is an area that, in most cases, will have its own municipal-level officials for operating it.

From a hierarchal perspective: country has many regions; regions have many cities

Thanks for answer. I see generally. For hierarchal, I can use country and regions.
Example: Country -> US and region-> Alabama
Country-> Turkey and region -> Ankara.
Is it correct?
