Regency seat

A regency seat (Indonesian: Ibu kota kabupaten) is a capital or seat of government of a regency in Indonesia.[1] It is roughly equivalent of county seat in the United States or county town in the United Kingdom. Legally, regency seats are not administrative subdivisions of Indonesia and have no official boundaries. A regency seat may occupy an entire district (such as Sigli in Pidie Regency, [2] Ngawi (town) in Ngawi Regency), a part of district (such as Sarilamak in Harau district, Lima Puluh Kota Regency[3]), or several districts (such as Ungaran, which consists of West Ungaran district and East Ungaran district in Semarang Regency[4]).
