English country names and code elements. This list states the country names (official short names in English) in alphabetical order as given in ISO 3166-1 and the corresponding ISO 3166-1-alpha-2 code elements.
This list is updated whenever a change to the official code list in ISO 3166-1 is effected by the ISO 3166/MA.
It lists 246 official short names and code elements as of Dec 2010.
This site provides the 2-digit codes in multiple formats: http://opencountrycodes.appspot.com/
If you want them as linked data see package:iso-3166-2-data
ISO licensing policy here seems to be unclear but believe as a simple database of facts this material would be public domain. Given this, and the fact I extracted the data, I am licensing this under the PDDL.
