This list of regions of the United States includes official (governmental) and non-official areas within the borders of the United States, not including U.S. states, the federal district of Washington, D.C. or standard subentities such as cities or counties. Defunct, extinct or archaic regions are described in historic regions of the United States.
This list is incomplete; you can help by expanding it (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=List_of_regions_of_the_United_States&action=edit).
The ten standard Federal Regions were established by OMB (Office of Management and Budget) Circular A-105, "Standard Federal Regions," in April, 1974, and required for all executive agencies. In recent years, some agencies have tailored their field structures to meet program needs and facilitate interaction with local, state and regional counterparts. The OMB must still approve any departures, however.
