Countries on the Internet

[The world] Ever gotten mail from an address that ended in "am" or "tv"? Wondered what countries these addresses are from? Every country in the world, and a lot of islands and territories, have their own two-letter code or "zone", which often appears as the last part of the host name of computers in that country. North Korea is the only country without Internet connections. Most of the islands and territories are connected, too, except for some of the uninhabited ones.


IANA, the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority, keeps the master list of country codes which you can check on their web site.
