The nation is perhaps best known for its role in recent history. The Korean Peninsula was divided into the southern United States zone and the northern Soviet zone, at the end of the Second World War. In 1950, the northern region invaded South Korea and last 3 years, although achieving very little territorially. It was agreed that a demilitarised zone would be set up between the two states, which still exists to this day, while extensively fortified borders also exist amidst the high tension between the two states. South Korean has strong foreign relations with most of the world and has a highly pro-Western approach; the United States is a particularly close partner and is a relationship that has been maintain since the end of the Second World War. South Korea’s main exports are electronics and automotive vehicles, with multi-national corporations such as Samsung and Hyundai originating from the country. Culturally, Korea has historically had similar customs to China, but due to the wider geopolitical landscape in recent years has becoming increasingly westernised.
