Swedish to English translations [PRO] Law/Patents - Law (general)
Swedish term or phrase:upphört land
Seems like it means undisclosed/unknown, but I'm not sure why upphört in that case:
[Namn], [Personnummer], Medborgare i Upphört Land, [Adress]
Yugoslavia, Czechoslovakia, or Soviet Union, or even Rhodesia...
... Could be me when California secedes...

Explanation: If this fits your context, I'm thinking the reference could be to a country that no longer exists. I'm also not sure "defunct country" is the best (or even a standard) way to express this idea, but I couldn't think of a better brief term.
