KG stands for Kyrgyz Republic (Kyrgyzstan)

KG stands for Kyrgyzstan. This country has a red flag with a bright yellow sun in the center, the 40 rays representing the 40 Kyrgyz tribes; on the inner side the rays run counterclockwise, on the outer most side they run clockwise. The center of the sun has two groups of three rings which cross over each other, this represents the top ex-skeleton of a Yurt (traditional tent of the tribesmen). The red of the flag like may Asian countries' flags symbolizes bravery and valor. Moreover the sun evinces peace and wealth. The country has just over 1 Million people and was assigned the country code of KG from the UN's ITU. Each country receives a two character country code, and two character CCs are reserved in a lot of systems just for countries. For example, two character .com domains are not allowed to be registered anymore if they are not renewed. The only way to get one is to purchase it from a current owner.

Kyrgyzstan is the "Farthest Country from the Ocean"

KG is a landlocked country in Central Asia, bordered by four total nations. China and 3 other "Stan" nations (Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan).  Political candidate Herman Cain in 2011 didn't know how to pronounce the name of Uzbekistan so he called "Ubeki-beki-beki-beki-stan-stan", and said there was no reason he should know the name of the president.
Kyrgyzstan lies between latitudes 39° and 44° N, and longitudes 69° and 81° E. It is farther from an ocean than any other country in the world.  The mountainous region of the KG covers over 80% of the country (Kyrgyzstan is occasionally referred to as "the Switzerland of Central Asia". 
Kyrgyzstan has significant deposits of metals including gold and rare earth metals. Due to the country's predominantly mountainous terrain, less than 8% of the land is cultivated, and this is concentrated in the northern lowlands. Bishkek is the capital with approximately 900,000 inhabitants. As of 2010 KG's rivers no longer reaches the seas, as its water is withdrawn upstream to irrigate cotton fields in Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, and southern Kazakhstan. The Chu River also briefly flows through Kyrgyzstan before entering Kazakhstan.
