The Union of Burma (aka Burma) was a country located in southern Asia. India was located on the western border of Burma.
Sometime prior to 1968, Mother made an attempt to visit her son, (The Director) in Japan. H.A.R.M. Activities Coordinator Carly Isadora Tehore had messed up on the travel arrangements and Mother ended up in Burma instead of Japan. When Carly discovered that Mother planned another visit to Japan, she attempted to help make arrangements. Mother refused this help as she didn't want to get stuck in Burma again.
- Burma is now known as Myanmar.
