&#167;This is just as much gibberish as the previous statement.   The country
&#167;domains were *all* created in the mid 80's.  NB: created, not delegated.
&#167;They were all created at the same time, except the few extra that have been
&#167;added by the ISO people since as part of revisions of 3166.
&#167;
&#167;Back then, no-one was even considering charging for domain names.
&#167;
&#167;A (small minority) of the more exotic country domains may have been delegated
&#167;as a response to charging, and NSI's policies, (though I wouldn't say as a
&#167;way around the fee).

Sorry...I should have said "delegated"...creation is hard to pin down...

It is interesting to note that Robert Elz is endorsing the fact that
TLDs can be "created" BEFORE they are entered into the legacy
Root Servers.

Here are 2,048 TLDs that various people and companies have "created"...
they are awaiting delegation...
