I think, most people use the full name, when writing letters to other 
countries. I can't speak of other European countries but the Germans do.
And I think one of the reasons is, there are many national states in a small 
area compared to Northern America. And most people wouldn't even know, what 
the county codes for most of their neighbours are. If you would ask me, I 
couldn't say I knew even one without looking it up.
