    Can't be done.

    Locations can be spoofed. Packets of info go through servers all over the world. Some people currently use U.S. internet service providers and live outside the U.S. ... example, Canada, or VPN's. They may or may not be U.S. citizens, but will appear to be.

    you can make any decisions you want through all the inputs you have access too, the browser gives a bunch of information, inluding ip address and geolocation API. but as others have said this can be spoofed, but it can serve your simple purpose of exclusivity and geolocation (which is IP plus) requires permission
