Analysis with country borders factored in

Hi there,

I'm new to ArcGIS and testing its capabilities for possible implementation in a global logistics company.

I'm wondering if there is a way to easily factor country borders into network analysis.  To avoid customs delays, we omit service links, or drives from our analysis that cross nation borders in most cases (US to MEX, US to CAN), but allow it in other areas where cross border travel can be done without incident (EU nations). 

So right now I'm messing around with the service area layers...If for instance I wanted to generate a polygon in Detroit that doesn't spill over the border into Ontario and vice versa, how might this be done?

I appreciate the help in advance.
