SQL Nationalities Table (SQL format)

In the same way that getting a list of countries of the world can be tedious when developing a web-based system or website, nationality is one of those drop-down list boxes that is very time-consuming to populate behind the scenes. In many cases most developers resort to the copy/paste from Wikipedia method. So after doing that, I decided to export the SQL so that you don’t have to!

CREATE TABLE `settingsNationalities`
`NationalityID` int(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
`Nationality` varchar(200) DEFAULT NULL,
PRIMARY KEY (`NationalityID`)
) ENGINE=InnoDB DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1;

and then run the insert query below: (take care that the single quotes don’t get changed into back-ticks meaning that the ones with spaces won’t run)

INSERT INTO ‘settingsNationalities’ VALUES (1,’Afghan’),(2,’Albanian’),(3,’Algerian’),(4,’American’),(5,’Andorran’),(6,’Angolan’),(7,’Antiguans’),(8,’Argentinean’),(9,’Armenian’),(10,’Australian’),(11,’Austrian’),(12,’Azerbaijani’),(13,’Bahamian’),(14,’Bahraini’),(15,’Bangladeshi’),(16,’Barbadian’),(17,’Barbudans’),(18,’Batswana’),(19,’Belarusian’),(20,’Belgian’),(21,’Belizean’),(22,’Beninese’),(23,’Bhutanese’),(24,’Bolivian’),(25,’Bosnian’),(26,’Brazilian’),(27,’British’),(28,’Bruneian’),(29,’Bulgarian’),(30,’Burkinabe’),(31,’Burmese’),(32,’Burundian’),(33,’Cambodian’),(34,’Cameroonian’),(35,’Canadian’),(36,’Cape Verdean’),(37,’Central African’),(38,’Chadian’),(39,’Chilean’),(40,’Chinese’),(41,’Colombian’),(42,’Comoran’),(43,’Congolese’),(44,’Congolese’),(45,’Costa Rican’),(46,’Croatian’),(47,’Cuban’),(48,’Cypriot’),(49,’Czech’),(50,’Danish’),(51,’Djibouti’),(52,’Dominican’),(53,’Dominican’),(54,’Dutch’),(55,’Dutchman’),(56,’Dutchwoman’),(57,’East Timorese’),(58,’Ecuadorean’),(59,’Egyptian’),(60,’Emirian’),(61,’Equatorial Guinean’),(62,’Eritrean’),(63,’Estonian’),(64,’Ethiopian’),(65,’Fijian’),(66,’Filipino’),(67,’Finnish’),(68,’French’),(69,’Gabonese’),(70,’Gambian’),(71,’Georgian’),(72,’German’),(73,’Ghanaian’),(74,’Greek’),(75,’Grenadian’),(76,’Guatemalan’),(77,’Guinea-Bissauan’),(78,’Guinean’),(79,’Guyanese’),(80,’Haitian’),(81,’Herzegovinian’),(82,’Honduran’),(83,’Hungarian’),(84,’I-Kiribati’),(85,’Icelander’),(86,’Indian’),(87,’Indonesian’),(88,’Iranian’),(89,’Iraqi’),(90,’Irish’),(91,’Irish’),(92,’Israeli’),(93,’Italian’),(94,’Ivorian’),(95,’Jamaican’),(96,’Japanese’),(97,’Jordanian’),(98,’Kazakhstani’),(99,’Kenyan’),(100,’Kittian and Nevisian’),(101,’Kuwaiti’),(102,’Kyrgyz’),(103,’Laotian’),(104,’Latvian’),(105,’Lebanese’),(106,’Liberian’),(107,’Libyan’),(108,’Liechtensteiner’),(109,’Lithuanian’),(110,’Luxembourger’),(111,’Macedonian’),(112,’Malagasy’),(113,’Malawian’),(114,’Malaysian’),(115,’Maldivan’),(116,’Malian’),(117,’Maltese’),(118,’Marshallese’),(119,’Mauritanian’),(120,’Mauritian’),(121,’Mexican’),(122,’Micronesian’),(123,’Moldovan’),(124,’Monacan’),(125,’Mongolian’),(126,’Moroccan’),(127,’Mosotho’),(128,’Motswana’),(129,’Mozambican’),(130,’Namibian’),(131,’Nauruan’),(132,’Nepalese’),(133,’Netherlander’),(134,’New Zealander’),(135,’Ni-Vanuatu’),(136,’Nicaraguan’),(137,’Nigerian’),(138,’Nigerien’),(139,’North Korean’),(140,’Northern Irish’),(141,’Norwegian’),(142,’Omani’),(143,’Pakistani’),(144,’Palauan’),(145,’Panamanian’),(146,’Papua New Guinean’),(147,’Paraguayan’),(148,’Peruvian’),(149,’Polish’),(150,’Portuguese’),(151,’Qatari’),(152,’Romanian’),(153,’Russian’),(154,’Rwandan’),(155,’Saint Lucian’),(156,’Salvadoran’),(157,’Samoan’),(158,’San Marinese’),(159,’Sao Tomean’),(160,’Saudi’),(161,’Scottish’),(162,’Senegalese’),(163,’Serbian’),(164,’Seychellois’),(165,’Sierra Leonean’),(166,’Singaporean’),(167,’Slovakian’),(168,’Slovenian’),(169,’Solomon Islander’),(170,’Somali’),(171,’South African’),(172,’South Korean’),(173,’Spanish’),(174,’Sri Lankan’),(175,’Sudanese’),(176,’Surinamer’),(177,’Swazi’),(178,’Swedish’),(179,’Swiss’),(180,’Syrian’),(181,’Taiwanese’),(182,’Tajik’),(183,’Tanzanian’),(184,’Thai’),(185,’Togolese’),(186,’Tongan’),(187,’Trinidadian or Tobagonian’),(188,’Tunisian’),(189,’Turkish’),(190,’Tuvaluan’),(191,’Ugandan’),(192,’Ukrainian’),(193,’Uruguayan’),(194,’Uzbekistani’),(195,’Venezuelan’),(196,’Vietnamese’),(197,’Welsh’),(198,’Welsh’),(199,’Yemenite’),(200,’Zambian’),(201,’Zimbabwean’);

MySQL Countries Of The World Table in SQL

Sometimes we need a list of all countries, and whilst searching Wikipedia and copy and pasting is fine, it can take a long time and is tedious, so here is an SQL Country List to copy and paste.

 

CREATE TABLE `settingsCountries` (
`CountryID` int(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
`CountryCode` varchar(2) NOT NULL DEFAULT ”,
`CountryName` varchar(100) NOT NULL DEFAULT ”,
PRIMARY KEY (`CountryID`)
) ENGINE=MyISAM AUTO_INCREMENT=1 DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8;

….and then insert all the items

ALTER TABLE `settingsCountries` DISABLE KEYS;

SQL Server check table fragmentation level

If you are using SQL Server, and discover that what should be a simple select query, or particularly multiple select queries that are unioned together with a sort are running slowly, then the issue is your table indexes. This is particularly the case when using Date and DateTime fields for sorting.

If you are trying to sort a table or multiple tables by Date, then it is a good idea to add an index on the Date column, it makes things significantly faster.

Here is the SQL Query to check all tables in your database and the levels of fragmentation of each:

SELECT dbschemas.[name] as 'Schema',
dbtables.[name] as 'Table',
dbindexes.[name] as 'Index',
indexstats.avg_fragmentation_in_percent,
indexstats.page_count
FROM sys.dm_db_index_physical_stats (DB_ID(), NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL) AS indexstats
INNER JOIN sys.tables dbtables on dbtables.[object_id] = indexstats.[object_id]
INNER JOIN sys.schemas dbschemas on dbtables.[schema_id] = dbschemas.[schema_id]
INNER JOIN sys.indexes AS dbindexes ON dbindexes.[object_id] = indexstats.[object_id]
AND indexstats.index_id = dbindexes.index_id
WHERE indexstats.database_id = DB_ID()
ORDER BY indexstats.avg_fragmentation_in_percent desc
