Summary0000991: Problems with Export of IPTC-Data and Reimport in Lightroom 4

I don't know where the problem is, but I simply don't get the Export of IPTC data working correcntly.
My use case is as follows:
Nikon D7000 NEF images are getting data from a GPS Logger. With Geosetter I look at the data, change if necesssary and then try to export this data for further handling in Adobe Lightroom. My wish would be that the names of the places are written as keywords the following way:

Sub-Location > Location > Province > Country > "Location" (> in Lightroom is a sign for a keyword hierarchy). When clicking on the Keyword "Location" in Lightroom, I get to see all countries where my images are taking, clicking on a country opens a list of provinces of this country and so on. But I can't get it to work :(

The string I used for the first try was this:

-execute "-IPTC:Keywords+<$IPTC:Country-PrimaryLocationName" "-XMP:Subject+<$IPTC:Country-PrimaryLocationName" -if "not $IPTC:Keywords=~/$IPTC:Country-PrimaryLocationName/" -execute "-IPTC:Keywords+<$IPTC:Province-State" "-XMP:Subject+<$IPTC:Province-State" -if "not $IPTC:Keywords=~/$IPTC:Province-State/" -execute "-IPTC:Keywords+<$IPTC:City" "-XMP:Subject+<$IPTC:City" -if "not $IPTC:Keywords=~/$IPTC:City/" -execute "-IPTC:Keywords+<$IPTC:Sub-Location" "-XMP:Subject+<$IPTC:Sub-Location" -if "not $IPTC:Keywords=~/$IPTC:Sub-Location/"

This command gets executed after saving of the IPTC dates. The changes are not written to the original file, but to XMP sidecar files.

How can I get these information in Lightroom 4 in this hierarchical form?

Thank you very much for your help.
