Tikki Tikki Tembo by Arlene Mosel is a good Chinese folktale.

At Home Around the World by Lucy Floyd shows different houses from different regions.

Are you looking for fiction books about the countries themselves?

Laos:
Nine-in-one, Grr! Grr! : a folktale from the Hmong people of Laos
Jouanah, a Hmong Cinderella
France:
Do a search in my collection (http://www.librarything.com/catalog/rdg301library&deepsearch=France) on France - it will bring up 76 books total, 56 of which are picture books (and so tagged).
Egypt:
Ditto (http://www.librarything.com/catalog/rdg301library&deepsearch=Egypt) - 17 books total; 12 are picture books
Thailand:
The Umbrella Queen
The paper-flower tree, a tale from Thailand
Hush! : a Thai lullaby
India:
The deep search (http://www.librarything.com/catalog/rdg301library&deepsearch=india) does not work correctly here because it also picks up books about Native Americans, but you can go through the results and find ones with India as a subject heading (too many for me to list here).
Holland:
http://www.librarything.com/catalog/rdg301library&deepsearch=netherlands - 9 picture books out of the 13 listed.
Uganda:
Beatrice's goat
China:
searching just China as a subject (http://www.librarything.com/catalog/rdg301library&deepsearch=china - but be sure to change from searching all fields to searching subjects), I found 35 picture books
Denmark:
Fat cat : a Danish folktale
The yellow star : the legend of King Christian X of Denmark
Belgium:
Ah! - Belgian wit and humor
Japan:
The deep search (http://www.librarything.com/catalog/rdg301library&deepsearch=japan) also pulls up books about Japanese Americans, so check the subject headings.
Korea:
Minji's salon
Peacebound trains
The legend of Hong Kil Dong, the Robin Hood of Korea
The Korean Cinderella
The firekeeper's son
Morocco:
The butter man
New Zealand:
sorry, can't help you here!
Ireland:
The ink garden of brother Theophane
The Irish Cinderlad
Jamie O'Rourke and the big potato : an Irish folktale
Patrick : patron saint of Ireland
Munachar & Manachar; an Irish story
Mrs. McCool and the giant Cuhullin : an Irish tale
Small beauties : the journey of Darcy Heart O'Hara
Spain:
Follow the dream
The secret shofar of Barcelona
Building on nature : the life of Antoni Gaudí
Peru:
Ride the cold wind
The Llama's secret : a Peruvian legend
Wales:
The mightiest heart
Vietnam:
Always with you
Grandfather's dream
The lotus seed

Hope this helps a little!
