As the title of this posts states, I have created an updated version of a MySQL country code table from a table that I had previously created.

The previous table had become out of date and the updated table below now also includes domain extensions for each country and for reference and version purposes the year on which the alpha 2 code was introduced for each country.

Hence the table now contains the following fields:

  • id : an auto incremental number starting from 1 and numbering the alphabetically ordered country names.
  • country_name : an alphabetical list of the full country names.
  • alpha2_code : the 2 letter country code for each country.
  • alpha3_code : the 3 letter country codes for each country.
  • tld_extension : the top level domain extensions for each country (not all may be used or be active).
  • alpha2_year : the years when alpha 2 codes were first officially assigned to each country.

The table's collation is set to UTF_bin which seems to be OK in creating the correct output of accented and special characters in the web browser when using the PHP echo command.

Here's the MySQL query for the table:

DROP TABLE IF EXISTS `countries`;
CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `countries` (
  `id` int(10) unsigned NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
  `country_name` varchar(255) COLLATE utf8_bin NOT NULL,
  `alpha2_code` varchar(2) COLLATE utf8_bin NOT NULL,
  `alpha3_code` varchar(3) COLLATE utf8_bin NOT NULL,
  `tld_extension` varchar(3) COLLATE utf8_bin NOT NULL,
  `numeric_code` smallint(6) NOT NULL,
  `alpha2_year` smallint(6) NOT NULL,
  PRIMARY KEY (`id`),
  UNIQUE KEY `id` (`id`)
) ENGINE=InnoDB  DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8 COLLATE=utf8_bin AUTO_INCREMENT=250 ;

INSERT INTO `countries` (`id`, `country_name`, `alpha2_code`, `alpha3_code`, `tld_extension`, `numeric_code`, `alpha2_year`) VALUES
