You probably mean the "region" column in the country table, in which
case you could try the following:
[if type="data" term="country::region::[value country]" op="eq" compare="Europe-EC"]
You could also set your "country_region" as a value or as a scratch
variable and use Jon's suggestion. This may be helpful to avoid multiple
database queries, if you intend to test the value more than once in your
[tmp country_region][data table="country" column="region" key="[value country]"][/tmp]
[if scratch country_region eq "Europe-EC"]

Rather than assigning your own sales tax, it would probably be better
to try to work with what Interchange provides. What can be done to
demonstrate the errors you've seen, so that they can be looked into and
