Are these tags needed, or should this information be noted in the question body instead?
They do seem to be meta tags.
Would the questions be OK if these were the only tags?
Do the questions still make sense if this tag is removed?
If the answers are "no" and "yes" then they can be safely removed.
For me, the solution would be to require a country/state/province in the profile in order to post a question. But, it's a one-off for DIY, so I doubt it's practical
