The United States of America is a federal constitutional republic situated mostly in central North America. It has an interest in Koko Hekmatyar's activities and thus she is currently being monitored by the CIA. Other American intelligence agencies and branches of the armed forces have varying degrees of involvement with her activities. Two of Koko's squad members, Lehm and Wiley, are American while another worked undercover for the CIA. Although HCLI itself is implied to be headquartered in the United States[1], it is outside of Koko and her brother Kasper's respective territories.
