Searching data: map countries to scripts

I'm looking for a data source, that maps countries to scripts used in
them. The target application is a visualization in the context of my site, namely

At the moment I've extracted the prefered scripts from CLDR (e.g., Cyrl
for Russia, Latn for Germany and so on). Then I've added some historic
scripts by looking at corresponding Wikipedia articles and did some
manual updating. However, this yields a not really satisfactory result.

For example, Russia has only Cyrl associated, while, as far as I can
tell, at least Latn and Arab should also be mentioned, also perhaps some
historic scripts.

I'd appreciate any pointers if and where I could find data sets that aid
me in completing and error-proofing this mapping.
