    federal legislation covers the entire nation while provincial can be by state, cardre, or mayoral empowered. many possibilities usually because federal is too hard to oversee enforcement. china best option hopefully though us not a good example.

    Most countries have different levels of government:  1) a national government; 2) a regional government; and 3) local governments.

    So the federal legislature is the legislature for the entire country. There will usually be members from different regions of the country who are chosen in a national election (although some nations elect the members to represent specific districts).

    The provincial legislature is the legislature for a specific regional government.  All of the members of the provincial legislature will come from that province.

    The exact powers of the national legislature and the provincial legislature will differ from country to country.  Generally speaking, however, the national legislature adopts laws that apply across the entire country on whatever issues are given to the national legislature.  The provincial legislature adopts laws that only apply within that province on the issues given to the provincial legislature.   As a result, different provinces could have different laws on the same issue.

    A federal government is main controlling entity of a federation. It contains Member states or provinces that subdivide the load of governance among them, reserving certain powers for the federal government to wield exclusively.
