On the filing screen at, there are fields for city, state or region, and postal code. But country is missing, so (for instance) you can't distinguish between Perth, UK and Perth, Australia. Please add a country field.

Never seen the field for a postcode. – random Oct 11 '09 at 9:58
And the postal code field will have to be extremely flexible to accomodate UK postcodes (W1A 1HQ), Australian (4321), and what do the Americans call 'em, oh yes zipcodes – pavium Oct 11 '09 at 11:22
we have found that country is not required to get credit cards to work internationally -- are you not able to file? – Jeff Atwood Oct 12 '09 at 6:28
The confirmation e-mail I receive does include the country field (which is empty obviously) which makes it look weird. Also, why include the state/region field? – jilles de wit Nov 3 '09 at 10:18

We don't require a country for the purposes of billing - it's more important to get your location correct on the location field in Personal Info and "Where do you want to work?" located on your CV.
