Yes. Indeed, under the F.401 root - which interworks with
the DNS root - countries do run their own "de jure" domains
under a treaty controlled global root.
This includes even the U.S. where the official registrar
under US Government promulgated regulations is the ANSI
Secretariat. At the DNS Washington Workshop in 1994, the
ANSI Secretariat gave an extensive presentation on their
practices and rules for consideration by the Internet
DNS community. It was decided not to adopt them.
