    Shouldn’t Britain’s first-levels be counties?

    The kingdoms within the United Kingdom are administratively similar to the US states, in that they are first levels. The counties of Britain also work this way with the US counties.

    Britain will have them in the 1648 map

    The Uk is actually a regional-unitary state, meaning that they are sort of in between the two

    It is now. Back then it wasn't. It was very much a unitary state. Only in terms of Scots law was there any real differences and those were most concerned with the justice system, not day to day administration of government and government services.

    but their administrative status is the same, specifically in that they are the first level divisions.

    If we're talking 1815 then it was definitely the counties which were the First level Division- Wales was considered an integral part of England at that point.

    Though you also had the County Corporates and the City of London and the Scottish Burghs.

    This is technically before the existence of local government so you basically just had:

    Country (UK) -> County -> Hundred (if applicable).

    In 1815? No. They weren't first level divisions. They were historical regions and thus traditional divisions. But they had no more administrative function than "New England" ever had in the US.
