<p><strong>About</strong></p>
<p>Countries distinguish between metropolitan (homeland) and independent and semi-independent portions of sovereign states. If you want to see the dependent overseas regions broken out (like in ISO codes, see France for example), use <a href="http://www.naturalearthdata.com/downloads/10m-political-vectors/10m-admin-0-details/" >map units</a> instead.</p>
<p>Each country is coded with a world region that roughly follows the <a href="http://unstats.un.org/unsd/methods/m49/m49regin.htm" onclick="javascript:_gaq.push(['_trackEvent','outbound-article','http://unstats.un.org/unsd/methods/m49/m49regin.htm']);">United Nations setup</a>.</p>
<p>Countries are coded with standard ISO and FIPS codes. French <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/INSEE" onclick="javascript:_gaq.push(['_trackEvent','outbound-article','http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/INSEE']);">INSEE codes</a> are also included.</p>
