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.

What about the ones that give access to their code -- which are many on that list, as they want US government contracts?

They deny that they do this... but..

Do you want that list?

The OP is MIA for exactly five years but he seemed ahead of his time in this matter. :cool: Nothing of that calibre is publicly divulged and understandably so. Very cloak and dagger. :devil: Best you can do is go by what's publicly online from trusted sources.

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.

Problem for me is the question of "who knows who inside the NSA may have leaked information on how to spy to an individual or group." I completely identify with the OPs concerns.
