Brian,

Further to what Ben said, here's a column written by a former colleague
on the issue of illegal dishes in China:

And here's a piece on one of the crackdowns that includes some pictures
of ingeniously disguised dishes:

The only other country I can tell you about is North Korea, where there
is zero chance anyone would have an illegal dish.
