Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Brilliant Comrade of Kim Jong-un is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Brilliant Comrade Kim Jong-un with an iron fist, and remarkable for its vat-grown people, prohibition of alcohol, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 15.53 billion comrade workers 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — is primarily concerned with Defense, although Healthcare, Education, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bright Palace of the People. The income tax rate is 100%.

The strong comrade worker economy, worth a remarkable 3,558 trillion Glorious People's 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, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. 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 amazing 229,152 Glorious People's Won, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, policemen want to put the nation's homosexuals up against a wall, no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, and the nation's government buildings are remarkable for being ugly concrete boxes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Kim Jong-un's national animal is the pig-dog, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Sacred Study of Great Leader.

Kim Jong-un is ranked 85,174th in the world and 133rd in The Alliance of Dictators for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 65.19 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
