I honestly don't know how pertinent that information would be. The "location" field in user profiles is optional and not restricted to countries. –  Frédéric Hamidi Aug 7 '13 at 17:49
    
Would this be by ip or by whats in your profile? I ask because by ip would expose information that people may not want exposed –  Richard Tingle Aug 7 '13 at 17:49
    
There is a statistic somewhere that is similar. I think it had to do with the german careers launch, but not sure. –  juergen d Aug 7 '13 at 17:51

I doubt that this info ever will be made available. Either CommonsWare will be the only user in the country of "Over Here!", or his true location is going to be revealed, which is perhaps not what he or anyone else would want. –  Martijn Pieters Aug 7 '13 at 17:52

Stack Exchange Data Explorer is your best bet I think. –  hjpotter92 Aug 7 '13 at 17:52
    
I'm thinking more in the registration country rather than the user IP I wasn't aware of SS Data Explorer, I'll check into it! thanks! –  Pedro Aug 7 '13 at 18:00

Here's a Data Explorer query that might help:

As BoltClock points out, it's by no means foolproof.

Tip: if you're looking for a particular city with a non-unique name, entering something like e.g. santiago%chile in the location field may be helpful.

Are people still forking from my original query? Aw shucks :3 I should note that all it really does is a case-insensitive LIKE match on the Location field, which isn't completely accurate if you're worried about things like abbreviations, misspellings and fake particulars. –  BoltClock's a Unicorn Aug 7 '13 at 18:40
    
that worked as a charm! thanks @Zero Piraeus –  Pedro Aug 7 '13 at 19:38
