A dur. Wrong. Dvds aren't really encoded any differently except for the PAL and NTSC differences. There is some information in the IFO file on the disc that dictates the region. It has nothing to do with what voltage or power system they run on.

Technically they are encoded differently(different companies do it different ways), but they all follow the same standard :| So all the region coding is, is a tiny little bit of memory on the disc & in the player that says "I am a R1 disc" or "I am a R2". If they don't match then riots break out and regional slurs are made.
