This issue has been around for a while, but has come to a head when you publish a new article. It makes moving irritating. It makes buying from the market unnecessarily cumbersome. Basically, a bad user experience with a simple, universal fix.
When you write a new article, the country you wish to publish in defaults to Albania. Same for when you move. Same for when you look select other markets. The country list should always default to your citizenship country since this is where the majority of your activity is or to your current location. Ideally, the country drop downs list should look as follows:
current location country
allied countries (mpp countries in battle screen)
all countries in alphabetical order
This simplifies choices for players and speeds up selection for the majority of interactions.
