The Democratic People's Republic of North Korea is a gargantuan, orderly nation, remarkable for its burgeoning pegasus population. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 21.247 billion North Koreans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22.1%.

The very strong North Korean economy, worth a remarkable 1,113 trillion won a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Trout Farming, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 52,413 won, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 191,610 per year while the poor average 10,169, a ratio of 18.8 to 1.

It is illegal to make racist remarks in public, Animal Liberationists are regularly jailed, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, and bicyclists are banned from major roads. Crime is a problem, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. North Korea's national animal is the pegasus, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

North Korea is ranked 62,781st in the world and 2nd in South Korea for Most Corrupt Governments, with 16.68 kickbacks per hour.
