Also see countries with a country code far larger than just 2 digits; three digit codes are far from uncommon -- such outlandish places as Ireland (353), Portugal (352) and Iceland (354) have them; and for the US territories and the Carribeans, you'll even see 4-digit country codes: Bahamas (1242), Barbados (1246). Looking deeper, it seems that the Vatican can be argued to have a 5-digit countrycode: +39066.

There _IS_ a standard here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E.164
Basically it allocates 15 digits to the aggregate country-code+number field.

> The HackerSpace Status API proposes a unified syntax to publish information about a hackerspace for consumption by javascript widgets, mobile apps and other scripts or programs. The API is flexible, and allows for custom extensions.
> The API is based on JSON, and defines the properties of the space status JSON object. In this specification, some fields are mandatory, whereas others are optional. A hackerspace implementing this API should at least provide the mandatory fields.
