If you are looking for registration data, try looking in one or more of


(poke around and see what you can find; I didn't spend much time trying, but several/all of the RIRs seem to mirror data from all the others)

Note that "networks in a country" is a funny phrase. The sets

 - address space assigned to all organisations located in country X
 - routes visible in country X (from some viewpoint)
 - all addresses assigned to devices physically located within country X
 - routes that are considered "in-country" in places where billing is aligned with the necessity to traverse a long bit of wet glass

are frequently incongruent. If this matters, you might want to consider a more detailed specification of "networks in a country".
