North Korea, officially a democracy, with currently and possibly for a long time under Kim Jong-Un's rule (read government), is one of the most interesting of places. It is a militaristic country and has one of the best cyber armies in the world. It is also known to be the only country in open conflict with the USA officially.
Although there is so much about this country that is mysterious, weird, and unbelievable in the true sense.
Well, North Koreans might be leading the world revolution with marijuana being not a drug and thus legal. With so much irrational illegalities in the country, strangely enough, the herb has managed its right position.
Their legendary king Tongmyung rode unicorns 2000 years back and archaeologists discovered the lair of the unicorn. At least that's what they announced to the world in 2012.
And have no plans to return it sooner or later. Also, they are the only ones in the world to have done so and doing so. So much for US's military dominance.
Yes, they have their own separate calendar apart from a separate internet, social media, television network and what not. As for the calendar, it's beginning is from 104 years back, of course, from the birth of Kim Il-Sung.
Titanic sank on the day Kim Il-Sung was born. Although North Korea has made no comments or claims, they can always come out and speak, it's a free speech world outside. At least it would be more believable, anything they say.
Oh yes, they have the largest stadium in the world as of now. And of course, they need one, with a capacity of 150,000, since they have their own games to organise and host executions, one's done already. It is important to keep up the morale of the nation. No wonder it's called May Day.
Construction stopped during the events of the economic recession of 1992, this 105-storeyed building is the world's largest hotel and beautifully designed and a complete waste of money. With tourism almost nil, I wonder, why do they even need a hotel anyway?
After all, they are officially a democracy, even if the ballot lists only one candidate, guess who?
He is known to have thrown his uncle, naked, in a cage, full of 120 dogs, like real hungry freaking dogs (the dogs killed him). And also known to have led the hacking of Sony Pictures because of some movie based around him, so I'll refrain from speaking anything more. Although a good one is, according to textbooks, he mastered driving at the age of 3, impressive!
Who is ruling for about a century now and is dead long back. The government is only a counsel to help him with it.
