By way of logical reasoning, it is possible to obtain the letters
corrsponding to the serial numbers. These are as follows:

(I, U), (2, I), (3, Z), (4, J), (5, B), (6, P), (7, G), (8, E),
(9, R), (10, M), (11, A), (12, N), (13, Y), (14, L), (15, X),
(16, K), (17, W), (18, C), (19, V), (20, D), (21, Q), (22, T),
(23, F), (24, O), (25, H), (26, S)

Thus, the name of the country corresponding to the numbers 7 to 13 is GERMANY.
