The countryside or country was a rural area or parkland on the surface of a planet that was outside of cities or towns. It was typically a woodland area, and was an especially popular spot for horseback riding. (TNG: "Pen Pals"; Star Trek Generations)

Although serving on a starship in space, Doctor Leonard McCoy considered himself a country doctor. (TOS: "The Alternative Factor")

Countryside homes became one topic of discussion in 2285, when Kruge had learned of Project Genesis, he was talking with Maltz about the possibilities that would exist. Maltz said that there would be "colonies, resources," then Kruge told him there would be "New cities, homes in the country... your woman at your side... children playing at your feet... and overhead, fluttering in the breeze, the flag of the Federation. Charming." (Star Trek III: The Search for Spock)

Kamin used to "disappear for days at a time exploring the countryside". While experiencing the life of Kamin, Jean-Luc Picard expressed his regrets about being a poor husband to Eline, using this as one example of how he believed he had failed. (TNG: "The Inner Light")

While Odo offered his skills as an investigator into the disappearance of twenty-two villagers in Rurigan's colony, he expressed his surprise that no one ever bothered to check the countryside. This of course was before he realized that village and the colonists were all actually holograms made of omicron particles. (DS9: "Shadowplay")

While a hologram of Leonardo da Vinci traversed a planet in the Delta Quadrant with the aid of The Doctor's mobile emitter, he thought that he was in America, and he described the countryside of this "New World" as being "alive and full of creatures strange and wonderful." (VOY: "Concerning Flight")

While in a holographic environment created by the Hirogen, the bar Le Coeur de Lion, Katrine told Mademoiselle de Neuf to take a little trip to the countryside to visit Monsieur Goulot to buy a high-frequency oscillator. (VOY: "The Killing Game")
