The country codes in Magento should conform to ISO3166 (aka ISO3) standards.
If you look in phpmyadmin at the table
directory_country you will get the full list of ISO3 codes used.
Note: There are some anomalies within Magento and the ISO3 codes, in particular Romania is ROU according to ISO3 but ROM in Magento pre-1.4. Magento have fixed this for 1.4 onwards (and Enterprise), so be careful if upgrading. There are a handful of codes like ROU.
Best Match Filtering
As the extension works based on the best match if it finds a set of rules that match for the country then it will stop searching. For this reason you can use * to indicate the Rest of World, so if it can’t match on the countries you have specified the * country is a catch-all.
