The municipalities of Liechtenstein, the Gemeinden, exhibit complex shapes, despite their small size.
Seven of the Gemeinden have one or more exclaves, in addition to the main territory:
- Balzers: 2 exclaves
- Eschen: 2 exclaves
- Gamprin: 1 exclave
- Planken: 4 exclaves, of which 1 is a true enclave

As a member of the EFTA, Liechtenstein is included in the Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics (NUTS). The three NUTS levels all correspond to the country itself (NUTS-1: LI0; NUTS-2: LI00; NUTS-3: LI000). Below the NUTS levels, there are two LAU levels (LAU-1: electoral districts; LAU-2: municipalities).
