debconf: country code in a base-config script


I want to configure some packages in the base-config script using the
value of the two-letter country code (e.g: "us", "uk", "il").

The information is available in debconf. However the following command
seems t give an indication that the debconf database is locked when run
from a base-config script:

country_answer=`echo GET debian-installer/country | debconf-communicate 2>/dev/null`
case "$country" in 
  0*)country_lc=`echo $country_answer |sed -e 's/0 *//' | tr A-Z a-z`;;
    # debconf failed
    logger "could not get country name from debconf using 'en'"

How can I read that value from debconf?
