I would guess:
The red letters represent
P - Portugal
S - Spain
F - France
B - Belgium
The red dot with the black letter represent
capitals with the rough location inside the country
L - Lisbon
M - Madrid
P - Paris
B - Brussels
Which leads to
Germany with capital Berlin as the answer. While Netherlands (2) also lies east of Belgium, the capital Amsterdam is not on the east border. The other possible answers are:
1 - Switzerland (Bern)
3 - Italy (Rome).
