Below is a list of conflicts between ISO 639-1 codes (for languages) and country code TLDs. A conflict occurs when a country uses the same code as a language it does not actively use.

Theoretically, country and language codes are orthogonal so the conflict does not exist, but practically, it could be a source of needless confusion.
