It is simple with DNS:
You just need to find a database of IPs and geographic regions and then
you can assign location codes to your DNS records.
This isn't load balancing per se, but it would direct DNS response
traffic based on geographic information.
People who lookup an A record in the UK would not get the same A record
from the US.
