That would be kinda dangerous to assume all email from a country is
spam.  The US is #1 according to SpamHaus.  If you want to block an
entire country, you could add the TLD to your MTA access list.

Anyone know of an RBL that will block countries known for SPAM and can
be easily integrated into Spamassassin or MailScanner?
