The People's Republic of Kim Il Korea is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Kim Kil Won with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, frequent executions, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.825 billion Kim Il 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, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kim City. The average income tax rate is 64.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Kim Il Korean economy, worth 28.5 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 a slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Trout Farming, Book Publishing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Furniture Restoration. 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 15,630 Won, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices, political dissidents are cut off from essential services, and Kim Kil Won has just been declared ruler of Kim Il Korea in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kim Il Korea's national animal is the Winged Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kim Il Korea is ranked 97,929th in the world and 7th in Colonis Spatium Universe for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring zero on the Clooney Contribution Index.
