Default CONUS Factions

Besides the big canonical groups like MilGov, CivGov, and New America, what are some factions that one might encounter in a CONUS-based campaign?

I briefly ran a CONUS based campaign set in the Arklamiss region. Since canon doesn't place significant Soviet or Cuban forces in the area to serve as the campaign's OPFOR, I had to look elsewhere for potential bad guys. Organized crime seemed like a good place to start.

Prison gangs:

Outlaw Motorcycle Clubs:

Political Radicals:

There were also plenty of far-left group active in the USA during the Cold War.

Cults:

Cults are a favorite T2k trope of mine. My players might even say that I'm too fond of them.

If you can, please add to the list. Any addition needn't be a black hat faction. Potential good guys, allies, and/or neutral factions can be just as important for a well-built CONUS-based sandbox.
