If we continue to support and build tools around this geolocation based
ip-dravel, we give people a false notion that this is something we should
do. 
Identify users with some other means that Geoip

Couple of things comes to mind.

* normal postage mail that they have to collect at their home and send
back confirming that they are indeed in the country  from where their IP is
* Passports scanned.
* Fingerprinting

Or just get rid of the whole idea and realize that the internet is global
and reaches everywhere no matter what your IP currently is.
