We have many options to utilize the Site Dimension, we can make it represents country/region/state all options are upon business requirements.

The site dimension could be a control point in the inventory items as well, where the user could not perform transaction without identifying the site dimension, and we have option to let AX validate on item site dimension, where the user could not use change site.

The site could reflect financial dimension, and generate an entry in transfer order between two financial dimensions

The Site dimension function in MS Dynamics AX 2012 is out of the box function, do not need to activate it as we used to do in previouse version.

Inventory and Warehouse Management->Setup->Inventory breakdown->Sites

Here we identify site code, description, time zone (it is important if you operate in multi country), and site address
