A 5 letter English word.

Remove the first letter, and you will get the name of a country.

The last 3 letters give the opposite meaning of the word.

What is the 5 letter word?

The answer is:

woman

Remove first and you get country name

Oman

Last three letters are

man (opposite of woman)

No-man

The other answer certainly fits in better, but I think this works too.
