Hi Hrach,
I thought I would have a shot at this, and it has been an education. 
There are a lot of dependencies. I was unable to trace which function 
asks the question "Village or Country" and it may be hidden. As a guess, 
I would say that this disambiguates names that may refer to both an area 
and a part of that area. Perhaps you could try something like:

region="Mzimba (Village)"
