I haven't seen any standard that has UK in it so I say use GB.
AA and SP are IBM internal designation for all Arabic countries and Serbia
(see email attached below). If you look at
http://www.niso.org/3166.html#serbia you'll see the Serbia question
addressed. So, I don't think these need to be added.

"SP" is the abbreviation that IBM uses for Serbia. It's appropriate to
call it a "territory", in the POSIX-locale sense, but,
politically-speaking, there may be a difference of opinion about whether
it's a country.
"AA" is the IBM generic designation for "Arabic-speaking countries". If
you're including only (and all) countries you don't need this.
