Yes they are country specific.
My IP starts with 64.x.x.x
That IP range only by USA cable companies.
A small country like Tuvalu, or Andorra, probably won't get any more than
one block assigned to them.
A block being in the range of X.0.0.0 to X.0.0.255.
With xipl IP locaotor you can see which countries are assinged which blocks.
