I've had similar trouble.
Google thought we were in Israel, even months after filling in the form on the 
page Jonathan linked to, on several occasions. This was years after being 
allocated the address block by RIPE.

We eventually got it sorted dead quick by implementing "Self-published IP 
Geolocation Data" and asking noc at google.com to use it.
