Australia Country Abbreviation

When you have "Australia" selected as your country, the initials used for location on a vehicle page are different to expected.

It comes up as:
"Location: Sydney, AS"

Usually, Australia is shortened to "AU", so ideally it would read as:
"Location: Sydney, AU"

Only small and not a big issue, but I thought I'd mentioned it anyway!
Thanks!

We're using FIPS country codes where Australia is AS. Sorry about the confusion, we'll look at changing to a different standard.

If I remember right, the other standards had abbreviations for countries that people weren't expecting too. So I think it's kind of a lose-lose situation if we go with a particular standard.
