Building on #9022 and the ongoing fallout from #8425, we really should provide a way to represent all abbreviations recognized by the US Postal Service without causing an international incident.

The attached patch does this by breaking down the choices into multiple fine-grained lists. It is backwards compatible in that its version of STATE_CHOICES contains all the choices present in the current STATE_CHOICES, but adds the following:

  • STATE_CHOICES now also contains Armed Forces "state" abbreviations.
  • A new tuple, USPS_CHOICES, contains all recognized USPS abbreviations, including independent nations which receive postal service from the United States.
  • A new model field (USPostalCodeField) and form field (USPSSelect) are added, taking advantage of the new USPS_CHOICES tuple.
  • Individual choice tuples are provided for: the "lower 48" states plus DC; all 50 states plus DC; all US territories; all US armed forces "states"; independent nations serviced by USPS; and obsolete abbreviations formerly recognized by USPS (e.g., the Panama Canal Zone).
