Not my field, but I think you should have two observations on each
crisis, one for each country--otherwise you are constraining the
effect of democstateA and democstateB to be the same when they
represent different countries, right?  I mean, if Sudan is country A
one time and country B another time, then Sudan is making a
contribution to both coefficients, and which one they contribute to in
which year is arbitrary, right?  Once you -reshape democstate,
i(crisis_id) j(state) str- you can

clogit DV democ controls, group(country_id)

I guess--but have you considered whether democstate is exogenous to
crisis behavior?  Especially in the fixed-effects formulation, where
you are identifying the effect off changes in status, from democracy
to not, or from not democ to democ, I would guess that crises can
cause democ status at least as much as vice versa.  Not to name any
names or dates.
