  COUNTRY.SYS is the help file where COUNTRY gets its information from.
  COUNTRY.SYS has to be loaded in CONFIG.SYS / FDCONFIG.SYS.
  When FreeDOS is already running, you can load COUNTRY.SYS later
  with DEVLOAD.

Comments:

  COUNTRY enables/sets international features of DOS by selecting a
  country code and (only with the unstable / devel kernel) optionally
  also a codepage and country file.  The stable kernel only uses the nnn
  value. For full support, use the unstable / devel kernel. You also
  need a COUNTRY.SYS file for the latter, while the former ignores the
  filename argument and only sets date/time/number formats, using values
  compiled into the kernel for a few common countries. It does not set
  sort order and upper/lower case translation tables. NLSFUNC can only
  be used with the unstable kernel.
  COUNTRY.SYS has complete NLS info (COUNTRY, UCASE, LCASE, FUCASE,
  COLLATE, DBCS and YESNO) for the following countries:
