I guess you will have to create a class/collection that will hold coordinates for google maps like this https://maps.google.com/maps?q=Slovakia&hl=en&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=46.946584,92.900391&t=h&hnear=Slovakia&z=8 . So you may have something like

Map<String, URL> countryMap = new HashMap(){};
countryMap.put("Slovakia", new URL("https://maps.google.com/maps?q=Slovakia&hl=en&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=46.946584,92.900391&t=h&hnear=Slovakia&z=8");

PS: Above link was achieved just by typing country name in google maps and then clicking on link button to see URL.

google maps has not any web service input country name and output/get country map?

You didn't said you want it to use one....
