Should I write about a whole country, just a region or a particular town?

It's quite hard, if not impossible, to write an inspirational and useful guide about a whole country in 800 words!

Don’t try to cram too much in; covering a whole country, such as France, is a lot to attempt in one guide. Be more focussed. Even Paris would be hard to tackle in 800 words and themed guides work well for larger cities – eg “Six perfect romantic hideaways in Paris”.
