I'm running DNN 7.3.4 and trying to set the Default Value for Country in User Profiles.

I have edited the Country Profile Property under Admin -> Site Settings -> User Account Settings

I also want the Country to be required along with other Address information.

When a new users logs in the first time they are presented with a page to update their profile, but the Country dropdown in not pre-populated.

In the UserProfile Table the row containing the data after the user account is created is "N/A".

How do I get the Country to be pre-populated with United States (221) so that all they have to pick is the Region (State).

AFAIK, Default value is not supported for Country and Region.
A couple of DNN versions try to retrieve this data from user IP

We really this back. Having it default based off IP is ideal but being able to set a default is sufficient. Making users pick from a list of 250 countries when 98% will be from US is a real pain and will negatively impact valid registrations.

I couldn't agree more David.

And, to make matters worse, since Region is generally display BEFORE Country, a new user will type his US State in the input field only to find out that after you select the Country it gets replaced with select to pick a State.

Totally backwards from what you find anywhere else.

I tried to find relevant tickets in but it was a confusing mess... There are some related tickets that are closed, there's one saying it got fixed in 7.4.1 (it didn't), there's GeoIP stuff that's related but confusing. So I'm not sure where to even followup on this...
