They say it's in the "North"

Several US States are officially named "commonwealths" such as:

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (North of game area)
The Commonwealth of Virginia (part of the game area, but mostly South)
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts (North of game area)
The Commonwealth of Kentucky (SW of game area)

So depending on how far north they mean, either Pennsylvania or Massachusetts.

As a follow up, I think Boston would make an amazing setting for Fallout 4. Lots of places that might make interesting "dungeons" like Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Harvard, Fenway Park... it's currently known as a center of education and research, so having advanced technology in the future isn't out of the realm of possibility.

Cause of the name "commonwealth" and the commonwealth realm.

It's commonly believed to be Massachusetts.

From "The Vault" a Fallout wiki:

"Commonwealth is an organisation of scientists that operate from their main base named "The Institute," a place to the north of Washington, D.C. Little is known about it other than the people there possess highly advanced technology and technological skills. The Commonwealth has created true AI and is capable of creating convincing androids. "The Commonwealth" may very well refer to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and "The Institute" would then refer to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Harkness and Dr. Zimmer are from the Commonwealth. "

You are talking about the Commonwealth of Nations, though, so really, you should be saying,

"Is it Antigua & Barbuda, Jamaica, St Vincent & the Grenadines, Australia, Kenya, Samoa, The Bahamas, Kiribati, Seychelles, Bangladesh, Lesotho, Sierra Leone, Barbados, Malawi, Singapore,
Belize, Malaysia, Solomon Islands, Botswana, Maldives, South Africa, Brunei, Darussalam, Malta, Sri Lanka, Cameroon, Mauritius, Swaziland, Canada, Mozambique, Tanzania, United Republic of
Cyprus, Namibia, Tonga, Dominica, Nauru, Trinidad & Tobago, Fiji Islands, New Zealand, Tuvalu, The Gambia, Nigeria, Uganda, Ghana, Pakistan, United Kingdom, Grenada, Papua New Guinea, Vanuatu,Guyana, St Kitts & Nevis, Zambia, India, and St Lucia?"

I think the answer is no.

According to the Fallout 3 wiki:

Commonwealth is an organisation of scientists that operate from their main base named "The Institute," a place to the north of Washington, D.C. Little is known about it other than the people there possess highly advanced technology and technological skills. The Commonwealth has created true AI and is capable of creating convincing androids. "The Commonwealth" may very well refer to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and "The Institute" would then refer to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
