    don't think so as it's not public information on instagram
    your best bet is the bio where some of the users include their location, but you would need a custom made tool to scrape that
    different approach would be to scrape by hashtags which are typical to a nation/country, but that wouldn't be 100% accurate, and i can only see this working w/ hashtags on foreign language (i mean other than English), because English hashtags are used by everyone

    my bad, you can't do this w/ mega bot, but followliker has the ability to do this, i haven't used the tool in months, i'm guessing it's a fairly new addition to it

    I've looked at FL user guide and saw scraping by location, but I don't know how that works behind the scene.
