With Android there are lots of development choices - you'd need to tell use what you're developing in first - Java? JS? Something else? What have you managed to do so far?

I would suggest using mapsforge if you want offline support and just a limited extract of the data.

See Offline Map Tiles from the osmdroid documentation. There are various ways to use offline tiles with osmdroid. Quoting from the documentation:

osmdroid provides out of the box support for several different types of offline map tile caches.

  • osmdroid's flavor of a sqlite database (recommended)
  • osmdroid ZIP
  • MBTiles
  • GEMF
  • GeoPackage (still under development)

Aehhh, any of the options would require @alsudane to render the tiles themselves to just show "one country" which obviously doesn't really make any sense.

Alternatively he could download tiles from I guess? Or not since they seem to offer only vector tiles but no raster tiles :(
