It's by whatever country I can associate with a player, based on
nationalities that are mentioned here, google searches, sec's map,
Yanick's Book, email addresses, time zones of their emails, 
submission times of their solutions, their name, or if all else fails,

If he was a footballer, he would play in the New Zealand olympic[*] team,

[*] England, Scotland, N.I., Wales, the channel isles etc. are not olympic
