I know there are two specs that essentially catalog the entire planet into the political region/subregions, with internationalization
- ISO-3166-1 which has 2-letter, 3-letter, numeric, and country names.
- ISO-3166-2 which has subdivision names and their abbreviations
- Is there any open distribution of these? I know you can buy the spec, but I know you can also implement it into a product. Are there any products that leak the spec out? Are there any draft distributions of
ISO-3166-like there are with the SQL spec?
- Is there anything that rivals these specs that is also internationalized that I can use in an open source product?
