This suggests that you have several observations for each country (but then it is hard to believe that your dataset does nto have a time dimension).

Since you're only interested in the average growth rate and the initial value of gdp, you only need one observation per country.

Assuming that x and y are indeed time-invariant, you can try the following:

bysort country: gen obsindex = _n twoway scatter y x, mlabel(country) || lfit y x, if obsindex == 1

If x and y are not time-invariant, you may want to look at collapse and egen if you haven't already done so.
