If you visit compass.torproject.org [1], you group relays by country and
you input "-1" to display all the results, you can get a nice list of
countries hosting relays with bigger percentage weigths in the consensus.

My understanding is that choosing a country outside the top10 or top15
would be a good location in terms of decentralizing the network. Of
course these countries may have more expensive hosting solutions.
