If I am understanding you right, you are in the Place Workspace and are seeing some names that are resolved with the country in the name and you have opted to see the "heirarchical view" (see buttons at top of list).
If you opt out of "heirarchical view", you will see ALL the locations in city, county, state, country order. Again, use the buttons on the button bar to decide which view you want.
Once in "Heirarchical View" mode, you need to look under the Country to find your place if it has been resolved. If it hasn't been resolved, it will be listed with city, county, state in alpha order in the list.
Hope that makes sense.
