Perhaps you can make use of iso-codes in conjunction with
libxml-xpath-perl or the like:

$ xpath -q -e '//*[@iso_639_1_code="zh"]/@name' /usr/share/xml/iso-codes/iso_639.xml
$ xpath -q -e '//*[@alpha_2_code="TW"]/@name' /usr/share/xml/iso-codes/iso_3166.xml         
 name="Taiwan, Province of China"

OTOH, if you leave it symbolic, you won't have to worry about finding
a name for Taiwan that doesn't offend anyone. ;-P
