I had a similar problem where I wanted to retrieve the Bayes autolearn
status from SpamAssassin.
What you're trying won't work because spam_assassin_check only returns
four variables. When you ask for six, the last two end up being
undefined. (Perl is forgiving and makes them blank instead of blowing
up in your face like other languages would.)
What I ended up doing was copying the spam_assassin_check function from
mimedefang.pl and modifying it to return the values I needed. In my
case it retrieves $status->get_autolearn_status() and makes that the
fifth item in the return value. Then I replaced all instances of
spam_asssassin_check in my filter with spam_assassin_check_customized.
You'll probably need to look at either the SA docs or the SA code to
figure out what you can pull out of the object to get the country info.
IS SPAM is probably in there too, but you could also calculate it by
checking whether $hits >= $req.
