Authorities of Svalbard and Jan Mayen
Svalbard and Jan Mayen is listed as a country by ISO standard 3166-1, but Svalbard and Jan Mayen are two Norwegian territories. The list
of municipality codes from Statistisk sentralbyrå includes codes for Svalbard and Jan Mayen. Those codes are the basis for the table
below. Celvin Ruisdael writes that these divisions are not, in fact, kommuner (municipalities). The local government authorities in
Svalbard are a sysselmann (governor), whose jurisdiction is the whole territory of Svalbard; and Longyearbyen lokalstyre (local authority),
established on 2002-01-01, whose jurisdiction doesn't extend to any cities other than Longyearbyen.
- HASC: Hierarchical administrative subdivision codes.
The middle two letters identify the

- Area: As corrected by Celvin Ruisdael. Total includes
23,124 km.² of uninhabited islands.
