===========
django-countries-plus
===========

django-countries-plus provides a model and fixture containing all top level country data from Geonames.org (http://download.geonames.org/export/dump/countryInfo.txt)

This package also provides a convenience middleware that will look up a country in the database using a defined meta header, ex: the Cloudflare provided geoip META header HTTP_CF_IPCOUNTRY. This country object will be
attached to the request object at request.country

The model provides the following fields (original geonames.org column name in parentheses).

* iso (ISO)
* iso3 (ISO3)
* iso_numeric (ISO-Numeric)
* fips (fips)
* name (Country)
* capital
* area (Area(in sq km))
* population (population)
* continent (continent)
* tld (tld)
* currency_code (CurrencyCode)
* currency_name (CurrencyName)
* phone (Phone)
* postal_code_format (Postal Code Format)
* postal_code_regex (Postal Code Regex)
* languages (Languages)
* geonameid (geonameid)
* neighbors (neighbours)
* equivalent_fips_code (EquivalentFipsCode)
