Is it a FedRAMP requirement for CSP’s to store and process data within the United States?

I have noticed that major CSP’s that have received FedRAMP accreditation are always storing and processing data within the United States. Is the US data processing aspect of this tied to any sort of law or security controls? I reviewed NIST 800-53 and could not find a control requiring data storage and processing within the US, so I’m trying to understand if FedRAMP compliance is associated to the data storage/processing location.
