Wuxuan County (Chinese: 武宣县; pinyin: Wǔxuān Xiàn) is a county of Guangxi, China. It is under the administration of Laibin city.

During the Cultural Revolution, the county was the site of pitched battles between rival factions. The investigative journalist Zheng Yi wrote of these battles and cases of cannibalism of members of the fallen faction in his book Scarlet Memorial: Tales Of Cannibalism In Modern China.[1]
