The globalstats_profile_country method allows you to get all public information about a specific country.

Input parameters:

country_namecountry name (in English); please see the country filters used throughout the EBT website for a list of valid values
language(optional) EBT language code, defaults to "en" (English); please see the EBT website for a list of available languages
time_offset(optional) offset from UTC in winter time, defaults to 2 (i.e. UTC+2 / EET)

The language and time_offset parameters allow you to localize some data, e.g. show the country name in your language or the timestamp of the country's last activity adjusted to your timezone. By default the data is presented in English and with a Finnish timestamp. Please note that the server is honoring European daylight saving time, so the time offset doesn't have to be adjusted if you're from a country with similar summer time rules.
