North Korea is typically a strange country for most of us. You would not see them in international conferences, or in policy development bodies like the United Nations, Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, and the likes, but we cannot just discredit their existence in this planet, as they have established their identity, character and state for a long time.

Rebels and those from poor families are seen. Kidding. But it's valid for most of the time.

North Korea has the 'fakest' elections ever.

If there's such a word. Because, if you would analyze the rationale of the act, why would you have an election if you'll have a 'God' under maximum control, who will lead the country for his lifetime? 

Democracy, eh?

Democracy, eh?

Especially when the choices are "Long live Kim Jong-Un" and "lifetime torture to death." I am sorry if I am wrong here!

Television networks are too boring.

Television networks are too boring.

In the state, only 3 channels are available for its people. It's sad to know because they don't have Nickelodeon, Disney Channel, HBO, Star Movies, ESPN and the likes.
