Nice OECD chunk you got there.

That's might not be a bad idea because there will be a few more datasets 
coming up as soon as I retrieve them :)

Whoop. Okay, I guess that highlights an important point; I should not 
bother with anything that's not an exact match for countries. Because it 
doesn't make sense. It would only be really useful if I was trying to 
interlink the countries from A with the regions from B with some 
partitive relationship.

BTW, I've just interlinked FAO Species with DBpedia, where the 
exactMatches are I think fairly accurate. I didn't bother to go deep 
into with anything else because I have zero clue about species. I'll add 
countries from FAO at some point, but right now as I see it, there are a 
bunch of codelists which consists of codes from different geoarea 
levels. Just a bit more work but no biggie.
