Let the country? Wow, he must have uber power if he has control over
whether the country does something or not.

The bottom line is you can't get anything useful back the way you
originally asked about. If you don't believe me go search the web about
it, there are numerous explanations why decompiling is simply a waste of
time. In the future keep tighter control ( read backups, versioning )
on your source code.
