Toylab Speculation:
Not much is known about the Common Wealth but they will become a major threat to the group in 2018.  It is possible the Common Wealth is located in the central part of the United States which is an area that has not been explored by either the Walking Dead (TV or comics) or the companion series Fear the Walking Dead.

While generally I associate the word Common Wealth with the UK there are also 4 US states that refer to themselves as Common Wealth including Kentucky (Where Kirkman is from), Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and Viginia. Walking Dead survivors have recently been moving West and hit Pittsburgh in Pennslyvania. Its possible the name Common Wealth is a hint that they could be either from Pennslyvania or Kentucky which would be close to that area.
