Thanks for your comments @Alex. The file submitted by Verisign to satisfy Specification 5.4.3 was created using automatic translation of the English Language names of the 193 UN Member states.
@Alex, if you have a less-error prone method of arriving at a solution, Verisign would invest some time in reworking the data. But cutting and pasting from the PDF seems error prone. We would need a programmatic solution to consuming those records. And records meant to be consumed programmatically are not generally encoded in PDF. But again, we're open to ideas.
