a) Create custom data field based on country
b) Add that field to a CiviCRM profile
c) Expose that CiviCRM profile to the CMS user pages as a public listing
d) CMS user edits profile, selects country
e) Country data (ie. United Kingdom, Samoa etc etc) is not displayed in that CMS user's profile, or in their related CiviCRM contact record
