Just be careful if you block a whole country especially somewhere like the USA.
Whilst there is some bad stuff, you may find good things like GoogleBot and others are also blocked.
You might have issues receiving emails from Gmail, HotMail, or Outlook for instance.

If you blocked somewhere obscure like Ghana or Nigeria, I wouldn't foresee issues, but blocking the USA could have further implications.

I'd suggest that the USA needs special consideration.
