This is not easy. There are several rules for domain registration, that vary 
from country to country. In order to be able to register such a domain (in my 
case, python.org.br), I would need to prove that I have a non-profit 
organization related to this name in some way. It's just too much hassle.

There's a better way to solve this problem (IMHO): add the tld to the domain, 
as in this example:

br.python.org

Several sites do exactly this provide customized versions of their content. 
It's a way to solve the problem without having to resort to multiple base 
domains.
