The allCountries.zip in /dump only contains countries and cities, but no states/provinces. (For example, the row for Sydney, Australia does not contain "New South Wales" anywhere.)

The allCountries.zip in /zip do contain countries, states/provinces, and cities (e.g. Sydney, New South Wales, Australia), but is limited to just countries that use Postal Codes (only about 80 or so).

So where can I find a COMPLETE database of ALL countries, states/provinces (full names), and cities in the world?

This database should show, for example, both "Sydney, New South Wales, AU" and "Kabul, Kabul, AF".

Thank you.

The first file is the correct one, you may also want alternatenames.zip to get all languages. The state/province info is in the admincode1 field as a self reference to the same table to features with featurecode ADM1.

Best Regards
