    You could say 'handle a country', but it almost have a ring of meaning 'to put up with' or 'endure'.

    'Sure, I can handle being in Iraq knowing that I get to go home in 3 months.'

    "I can't handle this country and its strange ways.'

    'I handled the country well for not being able to speak the language.'
