I caught the repeat of the "Tyrant" episode of 'House', and I never caught any mention of the actual country that President Dibala was ruling in Africa.

So that means we can offer up a few nominees to be that "missing link" with some other TV series:

African East Victoria ("Mission: Impossible")

Bocamo ("Mission: Impossible")

Kembu ("Jake 2.0")

Ghalea ("Mission: Impossible")

Limbawe ("Airwolf")

N'Shoba ("Capitol")

The Nyamba Protectorate ("Danger Man")

Sahelise Republic ("The West Wing")

Topango ("The Girl From U.N.C.L.E.")

Western Natumba/Natsumba ("The Man From U.N.C.L.E.")

Equatorial Kuhndu ("The West Wing")

Of those, Equatorial Kuhndu and the Sahelise Republic belong in an alternate TV dimension, so they're out of the running. Some of those that were mentioned in TV shows that were broadcast later than 'Mission: Impossible', Kembu, Limbawe and N'Shoba, could have been some of the earlier countries renamed after a new regime took over.

I'm not making any definitive choice; it's not my place to lock it down without further clues to tie them together. But I like the idea of it being the Nyamba Protectorate, if only because I enjoy the vision of Dr. Gregory House in the same space as John Drake.....
