Because mapping the coordinates to a location is hard, unless you have
a gigantic table listing each city in the world and the geographic
area it covers, so that you can find in which geographic area the
marker is.

The country is actually extracted from another field in your FAS
account, so a simple solution would be to add a new field to specify
the city, another field for the region, another field for......

Or, you can zoom in the map and look at the city name :)
