Having now spent a good solid 4 hours searching through this forum I have decided to give up and ask the question.
My store is UK based. I would prefer if, on the Create Account page, the default country was United Kingdom and not United States. I gather there must be a way to do this.
I know 222 is UK and I suspect you need to mod create_account.tpl.php file however, no matter how I try this, I cannot switch from default USA to UK.
If anybody does know could they please post the answer as this is getting more than a little frustrating.
