Living in North Korea
North Korea lies on the Korean Peninsula in East Asia; its capital is Pyongyang and the country is bordered to the north by China and Russia, with South Korea to the south, with the Demilitarized Zone separating the two. It is a member of the United Nations but is an incredibly controversial country, claiming itself as the legitimate ruler of the entire peninsula, despite South Korea being independently recognised by the UN. Following World War Two, the peninsula was annexed with North Korea coming under the occupation of the Soviet Union, but reunification was never achieved, and the independent socialist government was formed. It is suspected of many human right violations and is famously secretive, with the media strictly controlled and propaganda circulating to protect the militarised government from internal suspicion. The population exceeds 25 million and is on the whole, ethnically homogenous; this was expected to grow but the occurrence of a famine killing around 420 000 North Koreans from 1995 to 1998 affected growth. The population is sorted into assessed loyalty known as their Songbun; this is government-assessed and determines the food and opportunities given to these families. The economy is closed and centralised, and as a result it has experienced severe hardships, including the widespread famine. Most of the economy is subsidised by the state, including housing, education and food.
