Surcharge based on Country

We need to add a separate charge during checkout that applies only to sales to a specific country. The amount needs to be a percentage of the cart's subtotal. I've seen something similar added to a custom shipping script, but in our case, we need the amount of the charge listed on a separate line during checkout, not included with the shipping fee.

I grabbed a copy of the "Total Of X - Y Percent Surcharge" script and included it below. How do we limit this script to charge the fee only on sales to a specific country?

Code:

<?php 

// +--
// | All custom surcharge scripts work in the same way.  Global
// | variables named 'ecom.checkout_cartids' and 
// | 'ecom.checkout_cosess' contain cart information and 
// | checkout session information respectively.
// |
// | This script must set global variables named 
// | 'ecom.total_customsurcharge' and 'ecom.customsurcharge_text' which
// | contain the surcharge total and the surcharge text respectively.
// |
// | NOTE: Do not print anything within custom surcharge 
// | scripts.  They are designed only to return amounts and
// | text for custom surcharge methods.
// |
// | This script is a Total Of X - Y Percent Surcharge script that
// | returns a surcharge amount based on the subtotal of items 
// | being purchased.
// +--

$cartids = $this->globals('ecom.checkout_cartids');
$cosess  = $this->globals('ecom.checkout_cosess');

// +--
// | surcharge_percent  = The surcharge percentage.
// | surcharge_subtotal = The subtotal needed to get the surcharge.
// | surcharge_textshow = The text to be displayed for the surcharge.
// +--

$surcharge_percent   = 10;
$surcharge_subtotal  = 100;
$surcharge_textshow  = 'Surcharge Total';

$subtotal = 0;

foreach ($cartids as $cartid => $item) {

     $subtotal = $subtotal + $item['subtotal'];

} // End of foreach statement.

if ($subtotal >= $surcharge_subtotal) {

     $surcharge_amount = $subtotal * ($surcharge_percent / 100);

     $this->globals('ecom.total_customsurcharge',$surcharge_amount);
     $this->globals('ecom.customsurcharge_text',$surcharge_textshow);

} // End of if statement.

?>

Your help is greatly appreciated!

Re: Surcharge based on Country

At the top of the script, you can add this to limit using this script to a specific billing country, in this case 'United States':

Code:

if ($this->globals('core_session.country') != 'United States') {return 1;}
