All pretty straightforward when compared with US municipal government in its metropolitan areas. For example, St Louis County, Missouri has a population of just under 1 million in an area of approximately 500 square miles. There are 88 municipalities, some with populations under 1000, and most have their own police and fire departments. Greater London's boroughs, by comparison, looks a model of governmental sanity.
