Countries, or other administrative areas, or possibly even parts of
administrative areas.... 

Taking the US as an example, if it is tagged on a state boundary, we
will need the ability to override the state default at the level of
counties and cities. If we tag at a lower level, that's a lot of
relations which will need tagging. 

I think it might be easier to define a new boundary/multipolygon
relation per time zone, containing all the boundary ways, in inner and
outer roles as usual.
