Choose exitnodes in country x

Wed Jul 4 20:42:07 UTC 2007 and will be offering this functionality as a
server-side service - you will be able to choose an exit node in
country/state/city/ISP/Org so that the server can then setup a long-lived
Tor circuit for you - you will then be advised on how to configure your
workstation proxy settings, with regard to port number and domain/host name.
This does not require you to install Tor on your machine, or to upgrade it
when new versions come around.  Nor will Vidalia or Privoxy be required on
the workstation.

We will offer options to use stunnel or OpenVPN connections to our server
(your proxy).  And we're looking at using polipo (on the server) to speed
things up.

We have multiple sources of geolocation data so they will be more accurate
than the open source GeoIP library - we pay for them where the license
requires us to.

As Jonathan Yu pointed out there is no particularly reliable method for 
choosing by country, geoip is the closest match out there.

TorK uses geoip to offer a 'Citizen Of' feature, where you choose the
you want to 'browse the internet from', i.e. use exitnodes from only that
