// countries which have the concept of Area Code, the National (significant) Number contains the
// area code. It contains a maximum number of digits which equal to 15 - n, where n is the number of
// digits of the country code. Take note that National (significant) Number does not contain
// National(trunk) prefix. Obviously, as a uint64, it will never contain any formatting (hypens,

// Extension is not standardized in ITU recommendations, except for being defined as a series of
// numbers with a maximum length of 40 digits. It is defined as a string here to accommodate for the

// In some countries, the national (significant) number starts with a "0" without this being a
// national prefix or trunk code of some kind. For example, the leading zero in the national

// There have been plans to migrate fixed-line numbers to start with the digit two since December
// 2000, but it has not happened yet. See for more details.
// This field can be safely ignored (there is no need to set it) for most countries. Some limited
// amount of countries behave like Italy - for these cases, if the leading zero of a number would be
// retained even when dialling internationally, set this flag to true.

// number "33 (0)1 42 68 53 00" when defaultCountry is supplied as France.
// The country_code is derived NOT based on the phone number itself, but from the defaultCountry
// parameter provided in the parsing function by the clients. This happens mostly for numbers
// written in the national format (without country code). For example, this would be set when
