Have you uncommented the loadplugin line in your spamassassin init.pre file?

As others have pointed out, add_header lines with MailScanner have no 
effect. The X-Relay-Countries pseudo-header only lasts for the duration 
of the spamassassin scan.

Try a test rule with your own country's code, and/or with US, either of 
which are pretty much guaranteed to trigger fairly often:
header T_RELAY_FRANCE X-Relay-Countries =~ /FR/
