Brazil is a constitutional federal Republic which follows the model of the United States, in its organizing logic. The current administrative federal state division was set up by the military regime between 1964 and 1985. Brazil is divided into 26 federal states and a Federal District, namely Brasília.

This classification is an atypical unit of the Federation. The characteristic features of the Republic are that it is neither a federate state nor of a municipality. Moreover, by constitutional limitations, Brasília cannot be divided into municipalities.

As for the federal states, they are subdivided into 5564 municipalities that are autonomous, and are controlled by the elected representatives through the universal direct suffrage.
