Civilization V Customisation Wiki

Kokang led by Olive Yang is a custom civilization by ExplosiveWatermelon and EmeraldRange, with contributions from RawSasquatch and Arilasqueto.



Kokang is a region located between the Salween River and the Yunnan, China in the northwest of modern-day Myanmar. Located in an incredibly remote, mountainous region of the Shan Hills, Kokang was largely ignored by many successive Chinese dynasties. It functioned as a dual tributary to the Konbaung Empire and the Qing Dynasty before being ceded to British Burma and becoming part of the Union of Burma. Today, 90% of the population remains ethnic Han Chinese officially listed as "Kokant" an ethnic Shan group by the Burmese government under its 8 national race system.

Olive Yang[]

Olive Yang was a member of Kokang royalty and prominent Opium Warlord who held de facto power over the region.

Dawn of Man[]

Let no man tame you, miss Olive Yang. Your bold spirit guides you to fortune, for yourself and others around you. At just 19 you organized a Kokang military force, which would number over a thousand. Your ability to control the trade of opium assured you wealth, and your alignment with Kuomintang forces secured your people’s status as lords of the Golden Triangle. However, your arrest led to the downfall of the opium empire you created, even though your deeds helped secure your benevolent status among your soldiers.

Your boys seek renewed leadership, miss Olive Yang. Your assets are diminishing, and your profits are unforetold, but you still have the guidance to bring Kokang to new prosperity. Can you grow your wealth from barren soils? Can you guide your troops into uncharted riches? Can you build a Civilization that can stand the test of time?

Introduction: Did you wander too far? You're in Kokang, now and I'm Uncle Olive to you. What's your business here?

Introduction: Come looking for the princess? Well you're looking at her and her several guns... State your business.

Defeat: Hah! You're quite funny. You haven't seen the end of me. Prison didn't stop me very much you know...
