Good question. They might just consider themselves Americans. Or feel
that they are objective allies of Chinese AGIs in the world takeover.
Or perhaps think that their primary loyalty goes to the chess circle
they belong to. Who knows?

What sounds pretty curious is that there would be some kind of
Darwinian mechanism putting them in direct competition with the
"Humankind". A quite arbitrary assumption, given that while the latter
hardly exists as an entity, they are much less on the same food chain
than purely human groups already are.
