|One of the most politically and culturally isotated nations in the world, a dictatorship under Kim Jong-un.|
North Korea was named as an "Axis of evil" member, and the country is reported to have a poor record as regards human rights.
In sharp contrast to the affluence of South Korea, North Korea suffers severe famine. In the late 1990s hundreds of thousands of people (at least) died from starvation. A 2016 government warning told people to prepare for food shortages but not to despair, because “the road to revolution is long and arduous.”
North Korea reported a successful nuclear test on 9 October 2006, and a H-bomb test on 5 January 2016. It is believed to have nuclear weapons, although the truth of these claims is debated.
