This polygon layer shows the 16 federal states within Germany, administrative level 1, as of 2015.
The Federal Republic of Germany is made up of sixteen federal states, known as Bundesländer (singular Bundesland) or Länder (singular Land).[a] Since Germany has a federal constitution, the constituent states retain a measure of sovereignty. With an emphasis on geographical conditions, Berlin and Hamburg are frequently called Stadtstaaten (city-states), as is the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen, which in fact includes the cities of Bremen and Bremerhaven. The remaining 13 states are called Flächenländer (literally: area states).
