Dieter,

The OASIS geolang TC will publish URIs for that purpose:

http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/tc_home.php?wg_abbrev=geolang

While waiting for them, you might use the URIs defined in

http://www.topicmaps.org/xtm/1.0/language.xtm

and

http://www.topicmaps.org/xtm/1.0/country.xtm


The fact that this is from Topic Maps land doesn't matter, the
meaning of the URIs is well defined and they suit RDF as well.

Hope that helps.

Jan
