Dans le vs. au

What is the difference when saying dans le and au for masculine countries? and how to know when to use either? does dans le mean in the country and au means to the country??

I think maybe there's some confusion between the words "counties" and "countries"

You use "dans le" with masculine counties, and "au" with masculine countries.
