I do not know of any existing tool, nor did anything come up in web search. It would be fun to write one, but there are some difficulties. Parsing articles to extract author affiliation and country is not straightforward.

Thanks @Pierre; I will go over them...How Can we search an author(s) citations?

What source of articles and their citations to use is another issue. If you limit yourself to PubMed, you can use Elink to find citations for an article like this:

http://eutils.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/eutils/elink.fcgi?dbfrom=pubmed&db=pubmed&linkname=pubmed_pubmed_citedin&id=PMID

where PMID is the PubMed ID of an article.
