This question was asked back in 2014 HERE. Although style guidelines don't specifically address it, the examples show that place name go from smaller to larger jurisdictions, with everything spelled out (not NY but New York).
For English speaking countries, it would be something like:Tiny Town, Middle County/Parish, State/Province, Country. It might be different for countries with different types of jurisdictions, but it should still be small to large, ending with Country.
The question keeps coming up, and perhaps the style guidelines should be expanded.
