There is one National government, 50 state governments, the governments of the territories, Commonwealths, possessions and protectorates (Guam, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, etc). Cities and counties have their own goverments- so there are literally tens of thousands of governments in the US.

In 2002, there were almost 87,900 local governments in the United States. This figure includes cities, counties, towns, villages, and school districts. According to the 2002 Census of Governments, there are 87,900 government units in the United States as of June 30, 2002. In addition to the federal and 50 state governments, there are 87,849 units of local governments. Of these, 38,971 are general-purpose local governments, 3,034 county governments, and 35,937 sub-county governments, including 19,431 municipal governments and 16,506 township governments. The remainders are special-purpose local governments, including 13,522 school district governments and 35,356 special-district governments. All states except Connecticut and Rhode Island have county governments (although they are known as "parishes" in Louisiana and "boroughs" in Alaska).
