    All except explicitly specifying "USA" is politically incorrect.
    Even if it is very easy to guess the country where "Atlanta, GA" is,
    omitting "USA" *can* be seen as attitude of arrogance (if not
    offensiveness), sounding like "My country is important enough that
    I can require you to guess it". Little things like these support the
    growth of anti-Americanism on simpler minds here.
