True Korea

Population1.901 billion

LeaderKim Sung-Jil


The Galactic Peoples Republic of True Korea is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Kim Sung-Jil with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, anti-smoking policies, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.901 billion Koreans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pyongyang. The average income tax rate is 67.8%.

The frighteningly efficient True Korean economy, worth 224 trillion Won a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 117,840 Won, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

The government has become increasingly militant, the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, disputed territories across The Erviadus Galaxy are being claimed by True Korean college students, and atheists on vacation find Kimtuism's scriptures make useful doorstops. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. True Korea's national animal is the Chollima, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Kimtuism.

True Korea is ranked 153,405th in the world and 46th in The Erviadus Galaxy for Most Inclusive, scoring 63.74 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
