Kuwayyun (Honzi: 鬼洋, Banlongese: kweí iûnn), officially the Confederacy of Kuwayyun, is a country in western Daghreb. The federal constitutional monarchy consists of five provinces, three federal territories, and one special region. Kuwayyun is separated by the Lingtsiah Mountains into two regions, the largely tropical, southerly region of Likkong, and the largely arid, northerly region of Suakong. Kuwayyun borders Imyar to the northeast and Fusou to the east. Tsuabun is Kuwayyun's capital and its second most populous city, whilst Lingjiau City is its most populous.

The country is multiethnic and multicultural, which has a significant effect on its politics. A little over 40% of the population is ethnically Banlongese, making up a plurality as the largest single ethnic group within the country. The second largest ethnic group are the Sawami people, followed by the Yuet, Daryabi, and Khehkanese. The country's official language is Banlongese, whilst Sawami remains an active second language.

Etymology

Kuwayyun is derived from the name of the sea to the south of the country. The Banlongese communities of the east coast of Tung Wan had long observed the phenomenon known as ghost tears (Banglongese: 鬼目屎, kweí ba̍k-sái) – pale, white, teardrop shaped petals which would wash ashore in the typhoon season. Whilst they were most certainly composed of vegetation, and not the tears of ghosts as oral tradition would state, they did not appear to match any known flowers native to the region. Washing ashore from the eastern ocean, these petals gave rise to the idea of a land far across the Sea of Ghosts (Banlongese: 鬼魂洋, kweí hûn iûnn), the name by which the eastern ocean would come to be called. Today, these petals are known to belong to the Kuwayyun White Hibiscus, native to the tropical rainforests of the southwestern coasts of Daghreb, and the national flower of Kuwayyun.
