I'm searching for a list (xml,json,... preferred) which contains all sovereign states (lets define them as the members of the UN only) in their native name(s).

ISO-Code for state and language are not required, but would be good, too.

There's a human readable list in the wikipedia, but I honestly think that parsing html would be a worst case.

Is there a freely usable list available for what I need?

Edit: Tried enumerating them with RegionInfo in .NET, but "just" got 127 states.

Did you try using some wmic option???? Go to your cmd and type "wmic" then type "/?". Im not sure but i think I already saw something like that there. – Diogo Jul 15 '11 at 17:39
    
@Diogo_Rocha: Didn't find anything with wmic, but i think the most information I could get there is about supported windows languages. :/ – ragnq Jul 15 '11 at 17:52

I suspect the closest you'll get is one of the XML files from here: http://www.iso.org/iso/country_codes/iso_3166_code_lists.htm

They sell something which might contain what I need. For 208,00 CHF ..... Sadly the native names are more important than the iso-codes =/ – ragnq Jul 15 '11 at 23:53
    
Yes, unfortunately much of the useful information available from ISO is not free. – Mike Insch Jul 15 '11 at 23:56
