[OSM-dev] How did Mapquest do the localized rendering schemes?

the featured image shows a mapquest rendering that applies different 
styles based on the region.

As it has the same font problem than mapnik I assume it's mapnik.

How did they do the localization? Adding a boundary check to every way 
query? Sounds expensive. Also the rendering rules would explode if 
applied to a lot of regions.

Is it documented somewhere how they did it?
