 The alpha Tor Launcher UI includes the following text on the first setup
  Click “Configure” to adjust network settings if you are in a country that
 censors Tor (such as China, Iran, Syria) or if you are connecting from a
 private network that requires a proxy.

 We should change this text based on data from OONI, which as of early
 December 2017 indicates that the primary countries where vanilla Tor is
 blocked are Egypt, China, and Turkey.
