Every object in the world starting from K...has something in common, either be a hindi family drama or communist korea. Both have a repeat of events in every 20-25 years of its history. In desi indian dramas characters change over to next generation but the bottom line remains same and in korea a new leader called by the name "Kim" comes after 20-25 years and rest all is same. Both are monotonous and ever boring. No intellectual would ever love it.
History: North Korea, officially the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) is a state in East Asia, occupying the northern half of the Korean Peninsula. Its capital and largest city is Pyongyang. The Korean Demilitarized Zone serves as the buffer area between North Korea and South Korea.
The peninsula was governed by the Korean Empire until it was annexed by Japan following the Russo-Japanese War of 1905. It was divided into Soviet and American occupied zones in 1945, following the end of World War II. North Korea refused to participate in a United Nations–supervised election held in the south in 1948, which led to the creation of separate Korean governments for the two occupation zones. Both North and South Korea claimed sovereignty over the peninsula as a whole, which led to the Korean War of 1950. A 1953 armistice ended the fighting; however, the two countries are officially still at war with each other, as a peace treaty was never signed. Both states were accepted into the United Nations in 1991. On May 26, 2009, North Korea unilaterally withdrew from the armistice. The current leader is Kim Jong-il, son of the late Eternal President Kim Il-sung.
Country is normally in the abnormal state of emergency as there is nothing in the country to do. All modes of communications are severely controlled by the Kim Jong dynasty. Everything is monitored at such extent that as far as one can search data about this country in the world, i can bet that he even get a correct population figure.
North Korea has long maintained close relations with the People's Republic of China and Russia. The fall of communism in eastern Europe in 1989 and disintegration of Soviet Union in 1991, resulted in a devastating drop in aid to North Korea from Russia, although China continues to provide substantial assistance. North Korea continues to have strong ties with its socialist southeast Asian allies in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia.
As a result of the North Korean nuclear weapons program, the Six-party talks were established to find a peaceful solution to the growing unrest between the two Korean governments, the Russian Federation, the People's Republic of China, Japan, and the United States.
Most of the foreign embassies connecting with diplomatic ties to North Korea are situated in Beijing rather than Pyongyang.
What a foreign policy....no embassies even in pyongyang. Why the hell small boy Kim does such things? Every foreign tourist is even grouped with some other tourists and a special guide. Movement of tourists are restricted in certain areas (rather they are allowed to move in certain areas.) North Korea (other than Pakistan) is the only state to have no registered NRI's (Non Resident Indian) in country. Look the extent to which they are closed.
They dont have food, they dont have any significant industrial economy but they have only military that too, to fight only South Korea (similar to pakis who exercise to fight indians only). Some key developments include military accomplishments only which includes manufacture of Taepodong missiles, nuclear tests and 20000 cell phones in the whole nation. Internet sites have servers in germany rather than their motherland. Why the hell they exist even? A special permission from Kim Jong ministry is to be obtained to buy TV and radio. God, king, leader everything is Kim Jong and eternal god is his father who is another Kim. Recent reports revealed 72% dont believe in god (highest)..well who would believe after being made to live like a captive in his own country and that too after independence.
The only thing i can suggest for improvement is to change the name North Korea to North Kkorea as ekta kapoor did for her family soaps and her life changed forever. Long live, small Kim. Hope next ruler has a different name. School children has easy assignments as most of the general knowledge answer of the questions regarding their country is 'Kim'. Idiot.
And if we the people of this world want to do anything, is invade North Korea (though China will use its veto power to stop it as china does everything to oppose most). A look at the picture at start shows a grim reality of North Korea. The satellite picture shows the korean peninsula at night. Look at difference between two kk...land
