Geonames Country Data

https://github.com/mmontagna/geonames_countries

I recently had the need to map top level domains and languages to country codes, and since I couldn’t find a simple python package to do this I built this wrapper for the geonames country data¬†. I got the idea from the django-countries-plus python package.¬†

Sure I could have probably done what I needed, cobbling together a few other packages, but this seemed cleaner.
