To choose your country of origin, go to "Personal Details". Then go to "Profile Settings" and select "Show your country's national flag against your profile."
Also, consider using Firefox, Greasemonkey and the RHP Greasemonkey scripts. One of the scripts allows you to show the flag and rating of a player in the forums (at least a lot of the time; it only works if someone has looked at the profile of the player in question not too long ago, I think).
