They are very similar, but I prefer IOC codes because LAT makes more sense than LVA and the United Kingdom is not blank.

There is no reason why we have to keep rigidly to one code. We could use ISO code GRL for 'Mikki' from Greenland and, as mentioned before, add EUR for Europe (country unknown). Think of this as extending the internet domain code EU to three letters.
