Telephones/International Country Telephone Codes.
We have different international telephone codes for every country.
There are 196 countries in the world.
Some examples :
USA, Canada : 1
UK : 44
India : 91
Russia : 7
Netherlands : 31
How those standards were set for each telephone country code by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) ?
i.e. Is the Number codes given as per country names alphabetical sorting i.e. Afghanisation, Albania, Algeria etc
i.e. Afghanisation = 1, Albania = 2, Algeria = 3, but looks like this may be not the case as USA = 1.
Statistical analysis for the International Telephone codes
1.Min and Max Numbers
USA : 1 - Min Number
Uzbekistan : 998 - Max Number.
2. Telephone Code Sorting - Ascending Order
USA : 1
Kazakhstan, Russia : 7
Egypt : 20
Greece : 30
3.Telephone Code Sorting - Descending Order
Uzbekistan : 998
Kyrgyzstan : 996
Georgia : 995
Was a Random number selected for every international country telephone code for the standards ?
Some of the Whole Integer Numbers are not taken into account for example 2,3,4,5,6,8,9,10,11 etc. i.e. they are skipped.
International telephone codes were given on the basis of Grouping of countries region wise viz Africa, Asia, Europe, America, Antarctic ?
Awaiting your reply,
Thanks & Regards,

I found these three articles that may help you:
I don't have any other knowledge on this, unfortunately.
I have never thought of how the country codes were assigned, but it is indeed interesting.
Sorry I couldn't be more help!
Have a nice day,
