I remember reading somewhere that Mr. Pilkington, Frederick, and the other farmers in Animal Farm symbolized different countries, but I forgot which country they each symbolized. Is that true, and if it is, can someone remind me which countries the individual farmers symbolized?

Not countries, but people - see http://www.newspeakdictionary.com/go-animal_farm.html. Pilkington stands for rulers of England, Frederick for those of Germany.
