>Description:
during installation of FreeBSD, there is a list whose title says "Country Selection" but includes some places like Hong Kong or Macao, or politically disputed regions like Taiwan.

It would be better to replace the title to a neutral term like "Country/Region Selection" to avoid the political issues, as 1) no one calls Hong Kong or Macao as a "country", and 2) I don't think FreeBSD is a correct place to spread some sorts of political ideas.

>How-To-Repeat:
boot from the installation CD.
>Fix:
Replace the title to "Country/Region Selection" instead of "Country Selection".
