	'WI'=>"Wisconsin",  
	'WY'=>"Wyoming"
);

To generate a <select> tag with states in it, use this code (similar for both countries and states):

echo '<select name="states">';
foreach($states as $k=>$s) {
	echo '<option value="'.$k.'">'.$s.'</option>';
}
echo '</select>';

To use in Smarty, use it this way:

{php}
$countries = array(
  // values go here
);
$this->assign('countries', $countries);
{/php}
 
<select name="country">
{foreach item=i key=k from=$countries}
	<option value="{$k}">{$i}</option>
{/foreach}
</select>

For JavaScript, you can use an object notation:

var countries = {

	AL: "Albania",
	DZ: "Algeria",

    Since these are unincorporated territories of the US, i believe they should be in countries, not in states
