The Democratic People's Republic of Best Korea is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Kim Jong-Un with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, vat-grown people, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 19.749 billion Best Koreans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pyongyang. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 77.5%.

The thriving Best Korean economy, worth a remarkable 3,024 trillion Won a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 153,150 Won, with the richest citizens earning 6.1 times as much as the poorest.

Graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', beating enemies to death with a baseball bat is legal if done within nine innings, organ donation is compulsory, and Kim Jong-Un is generally seen as a know-it-all (Best Korea has found 1 easter egg). Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Best Korea's national animal is the Chollima, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Juche.

Best Korea is ranked 228,378th in the world and 11th in The Axis of Evil for Safest, scoring 21.5 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
