Subsequently, question is, how do you make a country possessive?

Countries'. Same with most plural possessives, just stick an apostrophe(if they end with s) or and apostrophe s (if they end with something else) after them and you should be good. For example, “peoples'”, “fishes'”, “Romans'” “Hastatii's”, “orangutans'”.

Women's. Because 'women' is already plural, and is possessive. Ergo, you just add the apostrophe 's'. It would only be womens' if womens without the apostrophe was the plural of woman.

Add -es for names ending in "s" or "z" and add -s for everything else. When indicating the possessive, if there is more than one owner add an apostrophe to the plural, if there is one owner, add 's to the singular (The Smiths' car vs Smith's car).
