The country is unnamed, but a map of the Libyan coastline appears in briefings and it's mentioned that their hostility to the U.S. comes from arguments over the limits of their territorial waters, which mirror the real life arguments between the U.S. and Libya over the Gulf of Sidra. The flag of the country, however, is entirely made up.
