> Most of my spam originates from Turkey and Russia...?

Dear Od Oren,
We started to build this capability, but ran into a little problem ... spammers LIE about the country of origin. No big surprise there, but we were surprised to find that, in fact, most spam comes from the good ol' US of A, and we can't block USA, though it would eliminate nearly all spam if we could.

Russia accounts for only 1.6% of all spam, and Turkey: 0.71%

We are currently compiling statistics on percent of spam vs. good mail within each country, so that we can calculate the "spam reputation" of a country, and factor that in to our filtering equations.
