au is Australia, at is Austria. In Europe at least the last domain
name in the internet address is often exactly the same as the country 
registration that you find on cars.

e.g. fr France, uk United Kingdom, nl Netherlands,

And since the last domain has two letters you can
with a little bit of imagination you can guess that de is Germany,
fi is Finland, se is Sweden, no is Norway etc
