While you're busy doing the housekeeping, why not make a country flag compulsory?

Anybody else second this?

Not only region, but address, income and size of household as well.

Indeed. More information helps in better giving advice when people ask where to buy such and such, but if they don't indicate location in their profile you can always ask. Plus if you make it mandatory, people who don't want to give a location will just select any ole random location. :-//

The final opinion seemed to be that it would force many to put a false country, so just as bad or perhaps worse as no country?
