Pronoun "she" is used to address a country.

I didn't find it to be uninformative that it should be downvoted. See more details here:

I would definitely use "it" for a country, except for more poetic contexts.

The best answer is She. As we all know, we say motherland, therefore, using she can match with that statement.
