Competition is big engine of crunching in BOINC, however not only countries, teams and users competition exists, but many local competitions between towns, schools and comapanies as well.
I think that at least 2 fields should be added to the user account info in each project:
Teams are something special and companies or for example schools are sometimes to weak to create own strong team.
On the other hand, if many "invisible" users crunch for one bigger BOINC user some individual motivations are lost.
These additional categories in statistics should give additional potential of distributed computing for science.

Good idea. There is already a zip/postal code element so the town/region is already taken care of. It just needs to be used.
