comment Is a Country/State/City Database available?
Absolutely, these are not straightforward problems; the possible hierarchies are complex (and by some definitions, unlimited) and depend on different cultural norms and governmental regulations as well as various use cases. I'd recommend looking at the documentation, which may help a lot: developer.yahoo.com/geo/geoplanet/guide/… You can pull out just the cities if you want, or just the administrative divisions. And Yahoo!'s documentation explains the different hierarchies. Still, I understand your frustration, it's complicated! Best of luck!
