A PROVINCE is almost always an administrative division , within a country or state . The term derives from the ancient Roman provincia , which was the major territorial and administrative unit of the Roman Empire 's territorial possessions outside Italy. The term province has since been adopted by many countries, and in those with no actual provinces, it has come to mean "outside the capital city".
