Is there a hierarchical context (Group/Folder/Sub-Site?) that I can assign a user to have different role in?

I am new to Orchard and i am trying to work out what i can do with the role based permissions.

I would like UserA to be an Administrator in orchard/SomeCountry/SomeDepartment/SomeArea
But only be a Author in orchard/SomeOtherCountry/SomeOtherDepartment/SomeOtherArea

Is this possible do this with an existing content item? (group or folder or sub-site etc)

Is there a module that already supports this?

If not then how easy would this be to implement?

Thanks for your help in advance

The roles module can be replaced entirely, but I don't think there's something like that already available, so you'd have to build it yourself.

Thanks you bertrandleroy for your response.

It seems a real pity that you can only set roles at the root level, which means there is no possibility to manage multiple departments on the same install? I think most other CMS's support this (i.e sub-sites)?

Can anyone else confirm or deny this is the case?

Thanks for your help
