GEO-IP blocking/targeting vs. cloaking

Say I'm using geo ip targeting to block a country (or several countries) from being able to view my website.

Do I risk of this being mistaken for cloaking (or anything else considered spam) by the search engines?

Or do the SEs only consider it suspicious, if one uses different versions for different countries?

Geolocation based cloaking is acceptable to search engines.
