The original World Showcase pavilions were not "put up using sponsor money."

The original pavilions were put up by Disney, but many had "participants" that paid rent or promotional fees, such as the restaurants in France and Mexico or beverage companies whose products are featured in Germany, Italy, and other pavilions. Notably, China and Canada had no "participants" at all. The Morocco and Norway pavilions had more financial support, but Norway has now long been without such support.

Yesterland had an article about this subject: http://www.yesterland.com/worldshowcase.html

It seems that until there are plans for a new World Showcase pavilion that can pay its own way and add to the corporate bottom line, we're not going to see new countries represented at World Showcase.
