Comment (by dekarl):

 Thank you for looking into this.

 I think it is ok to deviate from ISO 3166 and follow Musicbrainz' variant
 of the ISO 3166 country list. (They generally set good precedent, like
 adding plain north/south to the korean entries, so layman know which one
 is which.)
 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_3166-1#Naming_and_disputes has a note on
 the country name in the standard.

 locales.py mentions that the list is automatically generated (But how? And
 from what source?).
 Please keep our other locale list in sync until we find out how to do so
 automatically. See
