Well it does actually: There are two different region codes:
First load the package that has countryExData. I'm presuming this is:
Central and Eastern Europ East Asia and the Pacific Europe
19 18 24
Latin America and Caribbe Middle East and North Africa North America
24 19 2
South Asia Sub-Saharan Africa
Arabian Peninsula Australia + New Zealand Caribbean
5 2 5
Central Africa Central Asia Central Europe
6 5 16
Eastern Africa Eastern Europe Mashriq
7 7 4
Meso America North America Northeast Asia
8 2 5
Northern Africa South America South Asia
5 11 6
South East Asia South Pacific Southern Africa
8 3 10
Western Africa Western Europe Western Indian Ocean
13 19 2
Then create the described dataframe:
df<- data.frame(iso3=scan(what="") )
Read 6 items
> region <- merge(countryExData,df,by.x='ISO3V10',by.y='iso3')$EPI_regions
 "Latin America and Caribbe" "South Asia" "Europe"
 "Europe" "Central and Eastern Europ" "North America"
