David;

When you target a Geo region you don't need to exclude other area. Exclusion is intended to an area within the targeted region . For example: you target the whole USA and exclude one state.

Hi David, pick the Campaign in question, then click Settings from the top tabs, then All Settings from the sub-tabs.

 

Under "Locations", you'll see your current settings and beneath that you should see "Location options (advanced)".  From the sound of things you'll want "Target" to be "People in my targeted location" and "Exclude" to be "People in, searching for or viewing pages about my excluded location".
