Yes, if you breed two Pokemon from different Countries, the chances of getting a Shiny are increased to 1/1366 chance in B/W. Note, if the Pokemon are from two different countries, but have the same language, the chances will not increase at all. Also, if you breed two Pokemon that have different languages but you obtained one of them In-Game, the chance of getting a Shiny will stay the same. Also no, it will not Boost the chances of getting a Shiny from the original chance.
