I guess that the original intention was – essentially – for whoever sees the
file to: 

* consider also looking _elsewhere_ 

– not necessarily at a plain text file, although plain text can be nice. 

The definitive point of reference might be: 

ISO - ISO 3166 — Country Codes

 * Online Browsing Platform <https://www.iso.org/obp/ui/#search/code/>


To complement the alternative that you found, a few more resources. Some are

Discovered indirectly via

* <https://www.geonames.org/countries/>

– I like its clarity; and via <https://www.geonames.org/about.html>, the 
  recent modifications <https://www.geonames.org/recent-changes.html> 
  seem to be reasonable (I sped through a handful of the linked pages)

– legible in e.g. lynx.


which is also legible in lynx. 

<https://github.com/topics/iso3166-2?o=desc&s=updated> interesting, although I
couldn't find anything like a plain text listing in any of the repositories.
