It is unlike that such a solution, if it is possible, would be standardized.

I suggest asking the relevant government about the above.

Note that the user does not have any control over the path taken by a 
packet to reach its destination.  It is possible to set restrictions, 
such as which country a packet transits through, in a closed 
network.  The simple response is that it is not possible to set such 
a restriction in an open network.

I'll skip the second question.
