The UIU is, in-universe, a department of the FBI. The FBI and CIA aren't the same thing, and they don't keep all their resources in a giant pool together. They're not buddies. Also, the FBI doesn't typically have the ability or jurisdiction to operate espionage satellites outside the United States, and if they did, they certainly wouldn't hand that kind of power over to the department that "tends to attract the lowest rung of FBI talent."
Furthermore, doing a report on a country isn't the same as knowing a lot about it. You're right that it's a war torn anarchy where lot's of things can go unnoticed [sic], and it's interesting that this is the only thing you claim to know about it after saying you know a lot, but unless you do a lot of research into what it's like to be there, you're going to turn it into a generic hellhole onto which you could slap any name you like without it making a lick of difference.
And I must not have caught that there were multiple protagonists on the task force. I guess I misread the part where the "main character is a member of the task force that participates in all of this."
(Scantron's right, by the way - you could take a novel about the SCP universe in a million different directions, and you're using it to write about a bunch of made-up nebulous groups of people shooting guns for a while and then stopping. Hardly treading new water in entertainment, there.)
(…Also, wait. Waaait a minute. Romances? Who the hell's got time for one romance, much less plural romances, in the middle of an Utter Global Crisis? How could that possibly do anything for the plot?)
