This contains codes for smaller regions (council areas), but not for
Scotland, England, Wales or Northern Ireland (although they have codes in
the BSI standard that the 3166-2 codes for the council areas come from).

I do have half a notion that the current draft of 3166-2 added codes for the
nations, but don't have it to hand to check.
