That is not a complete list. I know for sure that there are
at least 94 numbers.

Are you referring to the two-letter entries like MP, AS, etc.?
These correspond roughly to states, not cities, and probably
do refer to the state where the SIM was bought, which is usually
well-correlated to the state that the user resides in. There is
a table naming the states on page 4. I am also not sure how
reliable these are.

The above are telecom. operators, so presumably they have been
allocated some prefixes that are either not tied to a locality,
or have not yet been put into use.
