Go to dnsstuff.com and use the tools there to do a geolocation by IP. It should tell you the city and country.The governing body for IP address assignment is called ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, currently a U.S.-based organization.

all yours referred above (Y!M, email ...) don't allow you to know the IP of others
