That uses Geo IP, which is a different data source.

The IP to country database is freely available at:

We are using an older version of mailwatch
(http://mailwatch.sourceforge.net/) for statistics on spam etc., as it can
log multiple servers to a central MySQL database. However getting some kind
of geographical information would be handy :)
The IP to country database seems to be fairly comprehensive and could be
stored locally, thus decreasing lookup times
