I am not sure what you mean, can you give me some more info? If you want to get a result set ordered by country and then by employees try:
SELECT Country, CompanyName, Employees;
       FROM MyCompanyCursor;
ORDER BY UPPER(Country), Employees DESC;

If you already have a cursor and just want to create an index that will order that cursor by Contry and then bu employees descending try:
INDEX ON UPPER(Country)+STR(9999999 - Employees,7,0) TAG MyCursor
