Country code

Country codes are short alphabetic or numeric geographical codes developed to represent countries and dependent areas, for use in data processing and communications. Several different systems have been developed to do this; the term country code refers to ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 or international dialing codes, the E.164 country calling codes. This standard defines for most of the countries and dependent areas in the world: a two-letter a three-letter, a three-digit numeric code; the two-letter codes are used as the basis for some other codes or applications, for example, for ISO 4217 currency codes and with deviations, for country code top-level domain names on the Internet: list of Internet TLDs.
