One of the reasons the modern nation state has become ubiquitous is that organizing information and actions internationally is much more efficient with clearly defined regional geographic entities.

I'm thinking about organizing location bookmarks in folders (hierarchical tree structure), and using country ISO codes would be the easiest solution. But it wouldn't actually cover every location on Earth.

Anyone has ideas for a broad geo property that doesn't rely on nation states?


Looks like Plus Codes could be a viable option. Two-digit resolution as folder names perhaps. Then use the other digits in the filenames for higher-resolution sync of details...
