Interpreting ZIP codes based on regional context

I'd like the geolocation API to yield useful results for German ZIP codes. Is there a way I can set the priority of different regions in evaluating queries?

We don't have German zip codes.

Thanks for the reply.

As inspiration, I noticed in the meantime that Yahoo's weather API does support German and Mexican ZIP codes in addition to US ones, and also lets you submit an optional country code as "focus" parameter to search queries that affects the prioritization during the interpretation of clashing ZIP codes. This is a satisfying solution to the problem that I'd love to see wunderground adopt in the future.
