I have no idea what it is but I seriously doubt it has to do with where the OP lives and how many books he buys through Amazon for his Kindle.
The OP's email address may also have been hacked and used improperly with Amazon. In that case Amazon would just close the account.
The solution then would be to get a brand new email account and try opening a new account with Amazon. It would probably be prudent also to get a new credit card number from his bank.
