As discussed [1] the country code can be removed from client side validation of JWTs since it not needed. Until this is fixed, the Marketplace and apps that accept in-app payments will have to pass in country: XX to pass validation. Part of this change would be to make request.defaultPrice to point instead to a currency code (I'm not sure if that affects validation or not). Validation happens here:

Putting this in the nom queue based on the design decision in comment 0. Note to bug triagers:
If we don't do this, we'll need to document that a caller will need to provide a country code that will not be used. It's possible that I could hear an argument that this may be okay to have though, however.

To whoever triages this - I'd really appreciate getting a rationale written in the bug especially for this one if it blocks or not and why.

We discussed this and think it should be a P3 blocker.  If we don't get a patch very soon we're likely to not block on this.

Kumar, will you do this work?

Looks like Fernando took it as he knows it best. Thanks Fernando.
Attached patch v1Splinter Review
Attachment #675611 - Flags: review?(fabrice)
For the record: country codes were originally intended to handle prices in the same currency that might change depending on the country. We are leaning toward handling that instead by using priceTier: 1, 2, ... That way we can also handle currency rate fluctuation and prices that might change per carrier.
