  MARC Code List for Countries
Three-character codes are also used for the United States (xxu), Canada (xxc), and the United Kingdom (xxk) when the state, province or territory, or division is not known, but the country is known, or when it is not desired to code at the lower level.
Thus when using country codes to retrieve records, if the code for the entity has changed since the implementation of an earlier code list, it is advisable to specify both the new and previously assigned (historical) codes in the retrieval request if records coded prior to the changes are desired.
In this case, the code for the annexed entity is discontinued, and the annexed entity becomes a reference to the name of the entity whose code is used after the change.

 Country Codes
FIPS codes have not yet been assigned to these "countries", but the Factbook's naming scheme implies that they should be AX and DX, respectively.
Finally, FIPS allocates codes to the Paracel (PF) and Spratly (PG) Islands, two island groups in the South China Sea that are claimed by every country within shooting distance; ISO 3166 is noncommital about the Paracels and Spratlys.
However, some of the codes reported there are not the ones in actual use, because some countries are lax in reporting their codes to the U.N. Secretary General.

 FRANK'S COMPULSIVE GUIDE TO POSTAL ADDRESSES
For all other countries, we write the country name as the last line, by itself, in all CAPITAL LETTERS, with no accompanying notations such as postal codes, or hints as to which continent the country is on.
Thus when sending mail from the USA to any other country we are free to format the address according to the requirements of the destination country (for mail to Canada, the addressing requirements conform to our own; for details see the section on Canada).
The country names shown are the ones recognized by the USPS (highlighted names link to postal authorities, or at least they did at the time this section was last updated but web addresses tend to change out from under us).

 New ISO fees on the horizon? | CNET News.com
At stake is a tentative proposal from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) to add usage royalties for several code standards, a move that opponents say could weaken standards adherence by forcing software providers to pay a fee for each ISO-compliant product they sell.
Language and country codes currently provide a single, standard way of identifying languages (and locales) throughout the Web.
With the collapse of the Soviet Union, and the many new country designations that followed, the ISO made its country code standard freely available with no usage fees.

 International Address Formats (Postal/Mailing Addresses) and Other International Mailing Information
Many Asian countries internally use an address format in which the recipient is at the bottom and the rest of the address is in the reverse of the typical Western format.
Certain countries and special regions, such as Taiwan/R.O.C., are left out because they don't have the right relationship with the United Nations.
Specifically, addresses within some Eastern European and Asian countries are most often written in an order largely reversed from the typical Western order; but when mailing from a Western country it would be a good idea to write the country name at the bottom and a conventional Western order then becomes quite acceptable.
