Country list provides country lists in various formats. The data comes from the UK government, and more information can be found at the link below:
We originally built this tool for internal use, however, it's proven so useful that we wanted to make it available to all.
"British English names of all countries currently recognised by the UK government"
The data from the GOV.UK registers service contains countries that no longer exist; for example, Czechoslovakia and the USSR. We have removed such countries from our listings, however, if in our lists you do spot a country that no longer exists, please do let us know.
We'll be adding various new formats over time. If you like, you can let us know which format you'd like to see.
