AFAIK Ripe does not set a default, it is up to the LIR.
You can assign geoloc to orgs ans assignments
Ripe publishes a list of all allocations made to the provider and lists their country of record.
If the address space is unassigned I'm not sure as it is not listed in the file  of allocations that contains the country , but I would guess NL as the RIPE country of record.
