I am interested in a list of reputable antivirus software developed be companies based outside the united states. Preferably Russian, Chinese or Non-American allied European countries . Basically, I am looking for companies that may have an interest in detecting and eliminating en-ess-aye malware.

The NSA is responsible for Security and the use of spying techniques to accomplish that goal.The controversy is that their technology is advanced and undetectable.I don't really think they are going to infect your computer with anything.If you are concerned however there are many non US based companies that provide security software.However many have US Locations also.
If you go to their website and click "about us" you can usually find where their headquarters are based.

Thank you for your well researched replies. With only one notable exception, your responses were very helpful in my search.

Since my first post, I found yet another unexpected non-us AV provider:
http://malwaretips.com/threads/news-iran-introduces-domestically-made-antivirus-padvish.16793/
While its outside the range of my original request, it caught my attention. It was just released as a free software download to the world public but unfortunately the first release is in Persian. My guess is that will eventually change.

What if the non-US software is located on US servers?
