municipality under the central authority

anyway, it's a term with chinese characteristics. i'm wondering if this kind of system also happen in other states.

how to make it more simple? with a proper context, i think the word "municipality" is enough and will make it.

for example, Chongqing municipality...

there're four municipalities in China,  Beijing and Shanghai are two among them...

municipality

直辖市 The most common translation is what Echommm gave above. The closest to the 直辖市 as in Beijing, Shanghai, is Washinton D.C. - a federal city. But because of the different government systems, it is hard to make a direct comparison.

Municipality is just another name for city or township. For example, Regional Municipality of Waterloo is a regional government that look after a few small cities including Waterloo, Kitchener, Cambridge, etc. and their surrounding areas. The regional government reports to the provincial government.
