Swanna for Finland, I think. A swan is our national bird after all.
Everything is possible.

EMPOLEON. OFFICIALY CLAIMED.
Lucario (based on Anubis) Yamask Confagris (Ba (deceased soul) and Sarcophgus)
infernape and emboar are based of Journey of the West so they can represent China along with Arcanne
Braviary(Bald Eagle) Bofflant (Bison) for the US
Deino can be greece (based on the Hydra (a greek monster)) and Germany (They're English names have 1 2 3 in German)
Tauros fits Spain (Texas isn't a country) (Bullfights obviously)
kangaskawn is Australia
I claimed the fabulous Burgh in the Official Claim-A-Character thread, and I claimed Quiver Dance in the Official Claim-A-Move thread.
USA-(besides Braviary) at least for the area I live in, Torchic, as poultry production is HUGE in the Southern States, and it's always generally quite hot in the South
I know Hawaii isn't a country, but I've always felt that Torkoal would be a perfect fit for the volcanic Hawaii islands
Italy-Golett, Golurk, because they remind me of gladiators (Rome, Italy)
Finland-Wailord, because Finland reminds me of whales
Per one of your requests, I'd suggest Indonesia get Ferrothorn. The Durian fruit--I've remembered that for a long time since going to the wedding of an Indonesian cousin's wedding. (If you read the Bulba page, you'll see this suggestion for Ferrothorn's origin--and I love the various classical descriptions of the Durian on the wiki page.)
Israel could get Golurk (as one has said), or, perhaps more fittingly, Shaymin. (Or, perhaps, any of the RSE signature legendaries.) Russia could get some Ice type or a horse. I dunno about Russia too much, really.
Feel free(r) to discuss Battle Strategy with me--I'll discuss anything really.
Besides being a strange (retired) battler with a storied, legendary, mythical, exaggerated, and relatively unknown career, I am also an amateur English B&W anime reviewer. (pachiba, you like?)
And I take hoedowns seriously.
Also, thanks to everyone who has responded so far! I would love to continue reading more responses! And, my follow up country is.... the Philippines! I was born there and I'd love to see a Pokemon for it!
Thanks everyone and I can't wait to hear more from all of y'all!
CURRENTLY LOOKING FOR POKEMON (FOR 4TH GENERATION):
Any 10 ANIV Pokemon (or from similar 10th Anniversary events)!
Wishmaker Jirachi (Lv. 100), Ash's Pikachu, TRU Dragonite, GameStop Celebi, TRU Shaymin, Oblivia Deoxys, Oblivia Heatran, Flying Pikachu, TRU Arceus, TRU Regigigas, Pikachu-colored Pichu, VGC09 Milotic, Hayley's Shroomish
I still think Arcanine would represent China.
Meowth for Japan for being the Maneki Neko, or perhaps Gyarados, being the closest thing to what we view an eastern dragon would look like (though more aggressive) and its pre-evolved form being koi (list of national animals)--though if we're looking at koi, it would be Goldeen and Seaking.
Since when did Antarctica become a country?
Did anyone mention Snivy and its evos for France? I think I read that they were based on French royalty.
You Might Be A Redneck If...
You think The Nutcracker is something you did off the high dive.
You've ever smuggled food out of an all-you-can-eat buffet.
The original color of your carpet is an unsolved mystery.
You've had more court dates than second dates.
The closest you've come to royalty is eating at Burger King.
You've ever stared at a carton of orange juice because it said "concentrate."
You think a quarterhorse is that ride in front of K-Mart.
