Considering the size of some countries in Europe, is it even worth using
the subdivisions? San Bernardino County is larger than Switzerland, and
it doesn't rate its own SSn-N designator. California is larger than
Germany and has (I think) two designators, mostly due to how long the
state is in the N/S direction.
