Independent city

An independent city is a city in the United States of America which does not belong to any county.

It should not be confused with a consolidated city-county[?], which is both a city and a county under the laws of the State (such as Denver, Colorado).

It should also not be confused with a city-state, a city that is fully independent and part of no other nation. (such as Singapore)

In the Commonwealth of Virginia, all cities are by law independent cities. In other states, they are relatively rare.
