Local government in the United Kingdom is complex and varied. For a start, the UK is divided into four countries: England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
England consists of 55 unitary authorities, 36 metropolitan boroughs, 26 non-metropolitan counties, 32 boroughs and one Common Council of London as well as one Council for an achipelago 45 km (28 mi) off of the southwest tip of the island of Great Britain.
Northern Ireland is divided into 11 districts.
Scotland is divided into 32 unitary authorities.
Wales is divided into 22 principal areas.

It should be noted that England has an additional 6 metropolitan counties and 192 non-metropolitan districts, all of which fall under the 'higher tier' authorities above for at least some portion of local governance.
