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, it is outside of Koko and her brother Kasper's respective territories.

The United States Marine Corps is the primary amphibious force of the United States Armed Forces and falls under the Department of the Navy. George Black was to have become a Marine after graduating from the United States Naval Academy but sustained a back injury which ended his military carer. Scarecrow later arranged for the Marine Corps to send a group of Marine Special Operations Command operatives (often referred to as Marine Raiders), to retrieve Dragan Nikolaevich after he agreed to Koko's $5 million price tag, the amount of Dragan's reward. In the anime, the unit is instead named "Last Spurt." A fireteam of Securiry Forces Marines stationed at Guantanamo Bay Naval Base (GITMO) was ambushed by Koko's team and detained during the kidnapping of Leyla Ibrahim Faiza, and were quickly rescued by Night Nine. In Episode 23, a platoon from a Marine Expeditionary Unit's Ground Combat Element attached to the US Navy's 6th Fleet rescues George Black from a group called the "New Dawn Front" in North Africa after a setup by Koko, who used it as an example to George Black of Project Jormungand's potential, (this rescue was codenamed Operation Undershaft, which is also the name of Black's operations to control Koko).
