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.
