No, Abbudin is fictional. The show is filmed on location in Morocco. The setting takes place in the Middle East. You hear talks in the show about being near the Kuwaiti border. It takes place in that general area, but filmed in West Africa.
The geography is intentionally muddled to be representative of the Middle East, but not to be an obvious overlay for any single nation: Much of the action in season 2 takes place in Ma'an, which is the name of a real city in southern Jordan, similar in size to the fictional city of Ma'an, Abbudin. But there are references to Abbudin's border with Lebanon -- yet Lebanon is isolated from the rest of the Middle East by Israel and Syria, both of which are mentioned in dialog in the show.
