admin_level=1 is by definition higher than national level.
I would say a historical example could be German Confederation, before the
unification of Germany
Another historical example could be the Communist Bloc, which is larger
than the Soviet Union.
It might also be useful to map the limit of power of other countries that
formally controls a number of tributary, vassal or proxy states beyond its
own border.
