Not that you want to know, but I've finally found out what the American equivalent to a Netherlands "municipality" is. A Dutch municipality is equivalent to an American "county" in that it is a smaller divison which is not a city put located within a state/province. The major difference though is that incorporated towns/cities/villages within American counties have much greater independence than towns/cities/villages in Dutch municipalities, it seems.
