According to
all of Qatar appears on the net as a single IP address.  I don't know
if it's NAT or a proxy that you need to use to get out to the world,
but whatever the exact cause, it had a predictable consequence -- the
entire country was barred from editing Wikipedia, due to abuse by
(presumably) a few people.
