Naruba is a country in West Africa.


Naruba is shown to be located between Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Benin and Burkina Faso. Its capital city is Soji.


Although a legitimate democratic government does exist and is based out of the capital city Soji, large portions of the nation are controlled by warlords. A significant threat to the leadership is Atsu Kalame, who commanded a 10,000 strong army of militants.


It is mentioned to be one of the poorest nations on the planet, and with little to offer in terms of resources neighboring nations are mentioned to be reluctant to come to the Naruban governments aid.

Additional Information

The capital city, Soji, is shown to be at least partially circled by a large river. President Tom Kirkman has US Air Force UAV's destroy multiple bridges leading into the city in an attempt to delay a rebel caravan led by Atsu Kalame from laying seige to the city.

Two other cities in Naruba are shown on the screens in the Presidential Emergency Operations Center. They are:

  • Yabani
  • Mongo
