Comment (by Nao):

 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_3166-1#Naming_and_disputes says:

  The country names used in ISO 3166-1 are taken from the two UN sources
 mentioned above. Some country names used by the UN, and accordingly by
 ISO, are subject to dispute:

 Some of the country names in the CampTix list don't exactly match ISO
 3166. For example, "Congo, (Brazzaville)" and "Congo, (Congo Kinshasa)"
 are in the CampTix list, but
 [https://www.wikiwand.com/en/List_of_ISO_3166_country_codes ISO 3166] has
 "Congo, Democratic Republic of the" and "Congo (the)". There are other
 discrepancies as well.

 In any case, I agree with what many of the commenters on
 [https://www.drupal.org/project/drupal/issues/1938892 Drupal's page] that
 Ian linked earlier. I agree that CLDR is a more suitable list for our
 purpose. Full code list in XML/CSV/XLS formats are available
 [https://www.iso.org/publication/PUB500001.html for purchase] (see
 related Wikipedia section]) while small sample portions &
 [https://www.iso.org/obp/ui/#search/code/ online browsable version] are
 free. Using CLDR's JSON format of county code & names can be a better
 source for up-to-date information.
