A much better way of solving this problem (rather than inlist, etc.) is described at

http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/data/characteristics.html

That is, create a new variable which is the two-character substring, and merge with a list of country codes that you want to keep, stored in a separate file. Saves a huge amount of typing and is easily modified to accommodate a different list of countries.
