Filtering countries is a bad idea, but it is probably possible to create
filters so 99% of your actual traffic is handled by a relatively small
subset of global routes and the remaining 1% routed via a default route or
via a Linux box.

Anyone know of tools and methods to do this? How effective is it ( how many
routes is necessary to capture 99% of the traffic)?
