Here is my best explanation:

'country' is the definition.

(Spain is an example)

'one getting into cross' is the subsidiary indication.

'one' becomes 'i' (roman numeral).

'getting into' means one lot of letters goes inside another.

'cross' becomes 'span' ('span' can be a synonym of 'cross'**).

'i' going within 'span' is 'spain'.
