Or the RelayCountry SA plugin which uses IP::Country::Fast so is faster 
than a dns lookup.
How is this differerent than Is it just a smaller 
zone, with a "spam country" prejudice?
One thing that is nice about listing _all_ countries in a zone, is that 
you can make yourself less of a DoS target by saying things like "We 
don't block spam" on your website. A lot of dnsrbls have gone under in 
the past. Look out! ;-)
