Actually, these "weird crypto laws" are not specific to the U.S. The
follwing states are currently participating in the Wassenaar Arrangement:

Argentina,  Australia,  Austria,  Belgium,  Bulgaria,  Canada,  Czech
Republic,  Denmark,  Finland,  France,  Germany,  Greece,  Hungary, 
Ireland,  Italy,  Japan,  Luxembourg,  Netherlands,  New Zealand, 
Norway,  Poland,  Portugal,  Republic of Korea,  Romania,  Russian
Federation,  Slovakia,  Spain,  Sweden,  Switzerland,  Turkey,  Ukraine,
 United Kingdom  and  United States.

The participating states implement the Wassenaar Arrangement in national
laws and regulations.  These may or may not be identical with the text of
the arrangement.
