Override the country model class using the plugin.

Put the below code in your custom module di.xml

<type name="Magento\Directory\Model\CountryInformationAcquirer">
        <plugin name="CountryList" type="[vendor]\[module]\Plugin\CountryList"/>

Create plugin folder inside [vendor]->[module] & create CountryList.php

then, Put the below code & play with $result return by default country list API.


namespace Vendorname\modulename\Plugin;

class CountryList
    public function afterGetCountriesInfo(\Magento\Directory\Model\CountryInformationAcquirer $subject, $result) {
        $data = [];
        foreach ($result as $key => $value) {
            $data[$key]['id'] = $value->getId();
            $data[$key]['two_letter_abbreviation'] = $value->getTwoLetterAbbreviation();
            $data[$key]['three_letter_abbreviation'] = $value->getThreeLetterAbbreviation();
            $data[$key]['full_name_locale'] = $value->getFullNameLocale();
            $data[$key]['full_name_english'] = $value->getFullNameEnglish();
            $regions = [];
            if (!empty($value->getAvailableRegions())) {
                foreach ($value->getAvailableRegions() as $keyr => $region) {
                    $data[$key]['available_regions'][$keyr]['id'] = $region->getId();
                    $data[$key]['available_regions'][$keyr]['code'] = $region->getCode();
                    $data[$key]['available_regions'][$keyr]['name'] = $region->getName();
        usort($data, function ($item1, $item2) {
            return $item1['full_name_english'] <=> $item2['full_name_english'];
        return $data;
