To make your life a little easier, what you're after is the specific
ISO Subdividision standard: ISO 3166-2. 3166-1 is the country codes only
(and is freely available); 3166-2 is the subdivision standard (states,
provinces, etc).

However, 3166-2 costs money, and isn't (well.. shouldn't, maybe) be freely

Of course, you may (or may not) be able to find it elsewhere now that
you know specifically what you want (if you didn't before).
