Not sure what Singapore Sling has to do with this extension.
A VPN is assigned to a country. So unless you set "Allow registered users to login from restricted countries" to Yes, VPNs can't circumvent the extension's logic.
I'm a member of a board that has my country blocked at the time i was not a member but installed a vpn for chrome set it to NL and bingo i was on a site that filters my country so i guess you could say yes easy to bypass this ext. If you want me to prove it block the uk and i'l come and join you.
The only way I see around this is to prohibit VPNs. Unfortunately, that requires a different database and it's not free like the country one.

The cost per query is $.002. On the plus side, aside from this, this web service also provides more detailed information, such as city, subdivision and postal code. So in theory an extension could be built to allow more granular access control.
