It seems geonames is using regions for ADM1 when it should most likely be using the provinces, which have ISO and GEC codes assigned.

Please refer to: http://www.statoids.com/umg.html

The first sentence on the page you have linked is 'A constitutional referendum was held on 2007-04-04. It passed. One of its provisions was to abolish the six provinces and promote the 22 regions to primary subdivision status, effective 2009-10.'
This is the same as other sources say, the provinces no longer exist (except in ISO).

Best Regards

Thanks for the clarification Marc!

ISO is so painfully slow with updates.
