Vishuu, currently it is not possible using the "drop down" type of field.
We are working on developing the new solution for "Country" field.
It will be released within one of the next builds.

Any news about update changing values limit, maybe eta?;) I'm asking because this limit is very important to me too, can't launch my site - one of profile questions is essential for my site and I need about 100 values :<

Is there any way to change it myself, in mysql database or something?

Vishnu, unfortunately this development was not completed yet.

>>is there any other way to add country list to my site.

Is it crucial to have a list? You might want to consider using a simple input box, where users will enter their country manually.

Is there any particular reason why there is a limit on drop-downs?

Seems very odd to do this, since the reason they exist in the first place is for long lists (i.e country/town/city)

Why no news about this ? I cannot believe that you cannot enter a list of countries in such software

Mac, Oxwall is a small team and we do our best to fillfull users' needs. However we have more important cases to fix and develop. 

if it is so must-have feature for your website you may consider obtaining a plugin from the store like google maps location.
