Add an observer :


And in the mymodule/savefield/model/obsever.php file add this:

class Mymodule_Savefield_Model_Observer
    public function Savefield($observer){
        //get event data
        $event = $observer->getEvent();

                //get order
        $order = $event->getOrder();

        //set the country here
