I find the locale database quite inaccurate sometimes unfortunately.
It might be a useful project to sync it with the CLDR?
Anyway this is what is on my fedora system at present:

locale -a | #list all locales
grep -F _ | #exclude nationalities
sort -k1.4,1.5 -u | #pick unique countries
while read LANG; do
  echo $(locale height territory)
done |
grep -F 279 #letter

Canada 279
Puerto Rico 279
USA 279
