In this context I intended generic to mean plain, bland, nonspecific,
uncharacterized, or maybe undifferentiated.  Lacking a great word I
just said generic.  It isn't country specific.  It could be anywhere
in the world with a name like that.  If it can be anywhere then
Murphy's Law says that it will be located in the worst place for you
to use.
