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.
