Here is my best explanation:

'country' is the definition.
(Norway is an example)

'absolutely not about the end of summer' is the wordplay.
'absolutely not' becomes 'noway' (I've seen this before).
'about' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'the end of' indicates one should take the final letters.
The final letter of 'summer' is 'r'.
'noway' enclosing 'r' is 'NORWAY'.

'in the' is the link.
