Don't know if it's relevant to programming and stuff, but atill
State : territory considered as an organized political community under one government.
Town: is small part of city.

E.g : turkey is country, ankara is province of turkey and city as well (every province is city) turkey has many states.

Province: is central city of a country which is central for government authorities.

City: a place with important facilities and enough population and area which is bigger then a village.

Thanks for answer. I have a question again. Are Alabama and Ankara same like state? Alabama is bigger than Ankara.

No, albama is state, ankara is capital city of turkey. There is no fix size for area to be called state. It's difference country wise, e.g vitican is a country with population less then a city.

You can't compare different countries states or cities. It's about them how they make it.
