I regularly need a list of countries in drop-down lists, etc. To make that easy, in our free SDU Tools for developers and DBAs, we added a tool to do just that. It's a view called Countries.
It's a simple view that returns details of the current official list of countries.
For each country, it returns the 3 character country code, the country number, the name of the country and which continent it's part of.
You can use our tools as a set or as a great example of how to write functions like these.
