Thanks. It worked.

 % wget http://geolite.maxmind.com/download/geoip/database/GeoLiteCountry/GeoIP.dat.gz
...
Saving to: ‘GeoIP.dat.gz’
...
2018-05-02 07:15:54 (11.1 MB/s) - ‘GeoIP.dat.gz’ saved [711428/711428]

 % gunzip GeoIP.dat.gz
 % geoiplookup -f ./GeoIP.dat 45.229.2.42
GeoIP Country Edition: BR, Brazil

So, all I need is a cron job that regularly updates this file.
