At the moment the custom trade search allows the selection of one of more countries. However, selecting specific geographic regions (as in postal rates) can be a pain. Even the UK is fragmented with options for England, Scotland, Wales (but not Northern Ireland) as well United Kingdom. The EU is scattered all over the place, ditto South America, Africa, etc. Some sort of geographic region option would be really useful. Even just sorting the countries in the list by continent would be a big help.

This is a nice workaround for selecting EU countries.

And yes, agreed, the trade system is antiquated.
