Out of curiousity, and with MaxMind's help, I've been tracking which countries send me spam. The top of the list is headed by Russia with 14% of 6118 messages, followed by the US with 9%. Then comes a batch that MaxMind's GeoLite Country list doesn't know of, followed by Turkey, Ukraine and China. The breakdown of the top twenty is as follows (in number of messages):

871 RU
581 US
314 --
293 TR
242 UA
207 CN
198 BR
193 ES
184 DE
183 LT
164 AR
160 IT
147 PL
139 GB
131 NL
124 FR
119 CO
116 TH
111 PE
103 RO

This correlates quite nicely with what I recently saw.
