I have nested Data from a Panel: individuals in regions; regions in countries. I know that fixed or random effects will account for the hierarchical structure. However, I am not just interested in the variance due to regional or country level effects. I am also interested in knowing specifically what is the difference from country A-E. The question is if it is reasonable include country as a dummy in hierarchical with country also being a random component?

Many thanks
