Administrative localities represent countries and hierarchical subdivisions of countries.

Every administrative locality has a valid adminLevel property set, defining its position in the subdivision hierarchy. All administrative localities at sub-country level must have a contextId property containing the GERS ID of the feature's parent administrative locality.

The borders of administrative localities, if known, are given by administrative boundary features.
