All you've missed is StrictNodes 1 option - it tells Tor that it has to enforce the nodes to be on your ExitNodes list. New identity helps to circle through them

    No, StrictNodes does nothing when it comes to ExitNodes 2019.www.torproject.org/docs/tor-manual.html.en#StrictNodes Oct 16, 2021 at 16:06
  • I've just tried it myself again - and it gives US only nodes with both ExitNodes and StrictNodes. I used to meet this odd behavior from time to time, but - yes, without it ExitNodes can be missing an exit country much more times than a GeoIP bias, even with a paid GeoIP database - it gives a way more precise work, by the way
