Simply Puns Or Cryptic Clues In BOLD:

Sitting atop a tall chair in the garden, one English Politician P was having his Evening Beverage,
His American Neighbour N was asking "Our Admiral can write Programs. What about your Countess?"
P replied "What is Programming, according to you?"
N elaborated "I had once written the standard hello-world code and I executed it to get the output. I can say that I am a Programmer! What about you?"
P quipped "Is that true Programming? It is only 1 or two lines!"

N, having the Disease of moving aimlessly, quickly changed the topic, saying "Oh man! your weather is contemptuous, it will Pour now! Let us go in."

HINT:
All words are related to one Area.
Name of the Program indicates that one Area.

All bold passages ...

... can be replaced with the name of a country, either by paraphrasing or as a homophone.

So:

Evening Beverage — High tea. HAITI
What about your Countess — Can Ada (Lovelace)? CANADA
according to you — per you PERU (solved by samm82)
I executed - I ran, IRAN
What about you? — Can ya? KENYA
Is that true — Is real? ISRAEL
1 or two — VANUATU
Disease of moving aimlessly — roam mania ROMANIA (disclosed by OP)
Oh man — OMAN
contemptuous, it will Pour — Bah, rain! BAHRAIN

    $\begingroup$ Aha, thanks! I've run a bit out of ideas. (The usual "answer that sounds like an medical condition" isn't about moving. I hope it isn't something that doesn't quite fit because of the first letter.) $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I think the 3rd one is rot13(cre lbh = CREH) and the 8th one might be rot13(EN jnaqre = EJNAQN) or something in a similar vein $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ My somewhat oblique comment was about a similarity between dystonia and Estonia, but the D is missing, of course. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Aha, then I just didn't understand what DY meant. I'd never had gotten the actual answer, but it seems that samm82's guess wasn't to bad. $\endgroup$
