The Rogue Nation of Ao Kuang is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, prohibition of alcohol, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 480 million Kuangs hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kraken's Keep. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 39.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Kuangian economy, worth 47.7 trillion Gold Doubloons a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is 99,382 Gold Doubloons, with the richest citizens earning 9.1 times as much as the poorest.

Dozens of viewers go online to hear whether a comma has been added to Clause 5 in Subsection B of Law 58375, surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, foreign countries consider stepping on their grass to be a serious offense, and cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, probably because of the absence of a police force. Ao Kuang's national animal is the Ghost Octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Ao Kuang is ranked 179,626th in the world and 1,722nd in 10000 Islands for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -8.06 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
