Nepal uses 5-digit postal codes. Here's a list of Nepalese postal codes by district.
Sierra Leone doesn't use postal codes.
Zip codes and postal codes help in mail sorting to improve delivery rates and speed. Instead of having to know where every street is in a city, you just have to know the zip code to get in the general area.
"In June 1962, the Presidentially appointed Advisory Board of the Post Office Department, after a study of its overall mechanization problems, made several primary recommendations. One was that the Department give priority to the development of a coding system, an idea that had been under consideration in the Department for a decade or more.
Over the years, a number of potential coding programs had been examined and discarded. Finally, in 1963, the Department selected a system advanced by department officials, and, on April 30, 1963, Postmaster General John A. Gronouski announced that the ZIP Code would begin on July 1, 1963. "
The last source has much more details on the history of the zip code.Source(s): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_postal_codes#... http://inventors.about.com/library/inventors/blmai...
