Block outbound traffic to country code

Hello, I have an F5 BIG-IP v16. I have several policies that block inbound traffic from country codes. Can anyone explain how to block outbound traffic to countries as well? Like if one of my internal users makes a request to a server in a foreign country that I do not want them communicating with, is there a way to block this outbound request to specific countries? I'm using Local Traffic>Policies.

Thank you for your help!

Anyone around who can help with this? It's been a month and a half and no answers...

How about with an iRule? Can someone help out with an iRule that uses a datagroup that contains a list of country codes we wish to block? Let's say I have an outbound wildcard virtual server and I want to block outgoing requests (all traffic) to IRAN from our network. Can someone help me build an iRule for that?

Thank you

This has to be an easy solution for some of you. Can no one help with this?

I see you also have a more recent question that sounds similar - https://community.f5.com/t5/technical-forum/help-tweaking-my-irule/m-p/298523

Does @David_Larsen's answer there help with this one too?

Yes I wasn't getting any traction on this one, so I started a new one. I had figured some out on my own, so this thread can be closed. Thank you for your help.

No worries - sometimes things fall off the radar. Glad you are getting traction on the other one. 
Thanks!
