MapPoint ?
It's not .NET, though.

You aren't really asking for a lot, are you ?

Countries should be easy.

Cities ( if you want all of them ) will strain you,
and will take a good-sized research team.

Roads would take an army of developers, researchers
and countless millions of dollars.

Bhavik:
I believe you have asked this a couple times and if I remember from your
previous threads you are looking for a webservice to use to have dropdown's.
I haven't answered because I was hoping someone might provide more help
than I can, but take a look at http://www.salcentral.com/Search.aspx and
search for "country" You should see some helpful result. I noticed that
there was one for "GetAllMajorCityByCountryName" from a weather
service....might be useful...

I've got a list of Country->Region->City

They are text files though, not in a DB, so you would have to import them.

They are also probably a few years old.
