Allocating 8 places per country to acommodate each team was the only way that Andy Kays cold do it from the start, then as either certain countries dropped out or individuals did he moved those spare places to where they were needed. At present there's us (England) Spain and Russia who have 13 places each, everyone else has less. So unless there's more drop outs... it doesn't look good for the rest of us.
IF a country cant host the event in the proper way, then it should go to the next available country on the list that can...
