This is the function you are referring. At the end, select html is built by core/html_select block

public function getCountryHtmlSelect($defValue=null, $name='country_id', $id='country', $title='Country')
    Varien_Profiler::start('TEST: '.__METHOD__);
    if (is_null($defValue)) {
        $defValue = $this->getCountryId();
    $cacheKey = 'DIRECTORY_COUNTRY_SELECT_STORE_'.Mage::app()->getStore()->getCode();
    if (Mage::app()->useCache('config') && $cache = Mage::app()->loadCache($cacheKey)) {
        $options = unserialize($cache);
    } else {
        $options = $this->getCountryCollection()->toOptionArray();
        if (Mage::app()->useCache('config')) {
            Mage::app()->saveCache(serialize($options), $cacheKey, array('config'));
    $html = $this->getLayout()->createBlock('core/html_select')

    Varien_Profiler::stop('TEST: '.__METHOD__);
    return $html;

The good news for you are core/html_select block allows including some extra data, such as you want, using setExtraParams() method

For instance, take a look at Mage_Checkout_Block_Onepage_Abstract::getCountryHtmlSelect() method

public function getCountryHtmlSelect($type)
    $countryId = $this->getAddress()->getCountryId();
    if (is_null($countryId)) {
        $countryId = Mage::helper('core')->getDefaultCountry();
    $select = $this->getLayout()->createBlock('core/html_select')
    if ($type === 'shipping') {

    return $select->getHtml();
