ISO 3166-2:KP

From Academic Kids

ISO 3166-2:KP is an ISO standard which defines geocodes: it is the subset of ISO 3166-2 which applies to North Korea.

It assigns codes to 9 provinces and 4 special cities. (One of these cities has since been reclassified as an Industrial Region, and codes have not yet been assigned to 2 other special administrative regions.)

Each two-part code consists of the ISO 3166-1 code for North Korea (KP) and a 3-character sub-code, hyphenated together.
