Webmaster tools - Site Configuration - Settings
This tool allows you to set a Geographic target (country) which is nice.
Also to set your preferred domain but you still need to do canonical links (new window) in my opinion.
Also you can set the crawl rate here, which I generally don't touch and leave at the Google default.
Help for the Site Configuration master category within Webmaster Tools (new window).
Here is Webmaster tools help on Geotargeting, Preferred domain, Crawl rate (new windows).
Here is a screenshot of what the "Settings" category looks like in Webmaster tools (below).
