The provinces and territories of Sirocco are political divisions of the Federal Commonwealth of Sirocco. Currently Sirocco is comprised of eight provinces (Cambria, Chai, Halvorson, Kinross, Konson, Watchman, Wellesley, and Zageta) and eight territories (Blacksands, Castor, Gillies Island, Greater Hagley, Maxia, Sandford, Stirling and Trinity), with each holding some degree of sovereignty, although overall governance is managed by the national government in Bradford.

The majority of provinces and all territories are located within New Zealand, while the three South African provinces (Chai, Konson and Zageta) collectively form the region of Zona.

History

Sirocco was comprised of four provinces until 18 November 2010, when the 2010 Provincial Reforms took place, adding Jellicoe, North Tasman and South Tasman provinces, whilst dissolving the Tasman Districts at the same time. This brought the count to six. The provinces were again altered on 13 December 2010, when the Auckland Suburban Region was renamed Wellesley Province. On 25 December 2010, Halvorson was added as Sirocco's first Territory. The following day, Castor and Cowan Islands were claimed.

Provincial reforms again occurred on 20 April 2011 when Wellesley, Camina, North Tasman and South Tasman Provinces were dissolved and Jellicoe split into Bolton, Denbigh, Falkirk, Jellicoe and Trafalgar.

Denbigh was formally dissolved on 8 November 2011. During the 2011 Otanaki National Exposition of Sirocco, Halvorson territory was officially constituted as a full province, on December 12.

Wellesley, despite having been dissolved on 20 April 2011, seemed to continue to have a presence in Sirocco which was formally recognised on 14 April 2012 when it again became a province. Sirocco's Auckland territories expanded further on 25 August 2012 with the establishment of Hobson province.

Zealandia formally ceded its New Zealand territories to Sirocco on 15 April 2013. On the same day, Sirocco's dependencies (except the Muldoon Protectorate) were reassigned new two-letter codes.

Sirocco's provinces, territories and dependencies were further overhauled under the Provinces Act 2014, which dissolved Bolton, Falkirk, Hobson, Jellicoe, the Mill Bay Dependency, the Muldoon Protectorate, Trafalgar and Weymouth, and elevated all dependencies to territorial status on 7 June 2014.
