Typically Organizations which have a global mission for their activities will have a drop down box in forms for "Country".  Whether the value of the <option> is a code or a RESTful URI fragment, the element content, in plain text is prone to be "fuzzy" so that a user may have some leeway in input.  When these same Organizations release data and apps, this fuzzy uncertainty should go away.

A survey of 13 organizations with international scope and many different products, says maybe this is not always so.

 "No Data" is neither a bug or a feature.  Graphic design and Text Maps should align from year to year.  Here is a tool to make that happen.
