Soho Covers for Nook - Country of Origin?

I am not happy with the fact of my very first post being a request, but this is rather urgent (I need to have a reply within 5 days), hopefully I'll be useful to someone else in the future.

I live outside of the USA (Czech Republic) and recently ordered Nook Touch + Soho cover (this one - http://www.barnesandnoble.com/p/soho...ition/22388476).

Now I need to fill out some customs related forms for FedEx so they can proceed with clearance process and deliver the package to me (I cannot check the content myself). In addition to item description they also require „country of origin“ information for every item.

After some googling I am convinced that Nook itself is made/assembled in China (if not, please correct me), but I am totally clueless about the cover. Maybe it is made in China too, but it could easily come from Vietnam, Malaysia or anywhere else.

Don't you own this particular cover so you could let me know?

I've purchased 3 NOOK covers from Barnes and Noble and they're all made in China. I kept the packaging and just now looked at them to confirm. I would go with that.

Also, I believe the Nook Touch is made in Taiwan or the Republic of China not the People's Republic of China. I don't know how touchy your customs guys are since, at least in English, they are both just called "China."

I just pealed the skin off the back of mine and it says "assembled in China."

The guys were apparently happy with the simple China & China combination and classified it as “it shall pass!”. I expect the delivery today.

EDIT: The package just arrived and China & China it really is . Once again thank you for your help.
