will allow you to fill in all of the missing country-year records with missing values. That is generally not that useful of a thing to do in Stata. But it will not make it into a balanced panel, which is defined as a dataset where each of N countries has T timeseries observations without missing values.

data with missing values for all the missing year records? i
