    countrys' would never be correct

    the plural possessive is countries' but the sentence would be better if it was reworded to use the plural rather than the plural possessive.

    e.g.,

    Coffee is the main export of these countries.

    if you need to have "economy" in there it should be plural as well (economies)

    The plural of country is "countries", not "countrys".

    "This country's economy" - singular.

    "These countries' economies" - plural.

    countries is plural but not possessive

    country's is possessive but not plural.

    I guess you would just put the word many or something like that in front of country's to make it plural possessive

    "countries" simple
