The Country resource represents the tax rates applied to orders from the different countries where a shop sells its products. Merchants select the countries where they sell their products when they set up their shipping zones and rates on the Shipping page of the Shopify admin. After adding a country to a shipping zone, store owners can then verify and adjust tax rates for each country on the Taxes page. You can use the Country resource to modify the sales tax rate for a country or sub-region to account for surtaxes or exemptions that apply to the store.

The countries list includes a default entry called Rest of World, which represents all non-specified countries.
As of version 2020-10, you can no longer create or update custom tax values for the Country resource.

The Countries pipeline can be used to request and retrieve details of the countries and the tax rates set up by the merchant on the shopify platform. Read more about this here
