Competition is big engine of crunching in BOINC, however not only countries, teams and users competition exist, but many local competitions between towns, schools and comapanies as well.

I think that at least 3 fields should be added to the user account info in each project:
-town/village: ....
-type of organisation you belong to: school, company,...
-name of organisation: ....

-eventually 4th, region

Teams are something special and companies or for example schools are sometimes to weak to create own strong team and companies, schools, and teams are mixed in statistics alltogether.

On the other hand, if many "invisible" users crunch for one bigger BOINC user some individual motivations are lost.

These additional categories in statistics should give additional potential of distributed computing for science and especially for Einstein@home, which needs a lot.
