Here are the first Fed Cup rankings, I used a similar system as I used in real life, just tweaked it a bit with points distribution etc.
Here's how it works, taken from the official website:
The Fed Cup Nations Ranking measures the success of all Nations participating in the Competition over a "rolling" four year period. After each round the ranking period will adjust and any results outside the adjusted four year period will drop off.

Recent performance is weighted more heavily: points from the second, third and fourth year of the Ranking Period will be reduced by 25%, 50% and 75% respectively. Therefore, 100 points would become 75, then 50, then 25 over the four years.
Code:
[B]Ranking for 2007[/B]
                 Points
Team             2006   2007   2008   2009   Total
1. Netherlands    750                         750 
2. Italy          500                         500
3. Canada         250                         250
3. Slovenia       250                         250
5. France         100                         100
5. Great Britain  100                         100
5. Indonesia      100                         100
5. USA            100                         100

Commit for your nation to play in Fed Cup!

According to the idea, the 8 team from last year play in the first round, the losers then play against the winners for group 2 clashes to earn participation in the first group next year. Group 2 is composed of teams new to Fed Cup this year.

I think it would be better to nominate as team captain for every countries the player which has the best rank... then team captain will choose the other member(s) of the team and will make the line up

Well committing here doesn't mean you'll get the to play, as the captains have the final word, just shows you're willing to play, as not everyone is.
The captain can be either someone players choose by themselves or the highest ranked player.
I don't have the time atm to put together a list of highest ranked players per country, so if anyone wants to do it instead feel free. :p
