The UNSSU compound raided in the movie was at an abandoned building outside of Lincoln, Nebraska. It stood on the grounds of a Nebraska state surplus site and remained in its "UNSSU" scheme (including large red lettering, white paint and burn marks) for many years until its demolition in August 2007.

A courageous look at a topic Americans should consider
I taped this 17 years ago. Recently, I dusted off the tapes for a second look. This series is not an anti-Russian polemic as claimed by the critics of the time. Rather, it is an examination of what it is like to live in a defeated and occupied totalitarian country. I decided to watch it because what happened to us in this series is comparable to the experience of Iraq under US occupation. If anything, the Russians were much kinder to us in AMERIKA than we are to the Iraqis now.
Despondent as they were, the Americans of AMERIKA had a much greater appreciation for freedom than we do today. Today, we have lost much of our freedom, and we have done it to ourselves. For a glimpse of what is in store for us if we persist in our present course, watch AMERIKA.
