note to self: if you didn't want the creator column but wanted to know the country, you could use a property path ... they're quite powerful:

   SELECT ?item ?itemLabel  ?country ?countryLabel WHERE {
    ?item wdt:P31 wd:Q125191.
    ?item wdt:P1433 wd:Q64666052
    SERVICE wikibase:label { bd:serviceParam wikibase:language "[AUTO_LANGUAGE],en". }
    ?item wdt:P170/wdt:P27 ?country . # means get the P27 value for the P170 value
   }
