Sadly, yes, but that makes it possible to use the same list code on all
languages. The same thing is done at /mirror/submit, that's where I copied

The code is GB, so I guess that was the origin. ISO 3166-2:GB, really.
I suppose we could either replace it, or to be really fair, expand it to
include the full country name, the menu is already fairly wide (due to
South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands, oddly enough :).

What existing list? The existing vendor submit information doesn't list
countries, it just says "please state your country".
