Trying to understand why / when this function is used…

What it appears to do is to try to ensure that in the event that where the table


did not already otherwise contain -- for each country -- a state with 
abbreviation (code) and name

        state/territory/province/region not available

then this function, when called, will ensure that such 'placeholder' '??' 
states get created. However there seems little point to use / call it except:

1) when the function was (originally) first being implemented

2) after adding/ creating one or more new countries (having new country codes) 

3) after deleting any states (in case any of the deletions included a state of 
code '??')

and therefore after I went and deleted entire sets of states would be the time 
to call that function… is this correct?
