North Korea: The Craziest Country in the World

North Korea North Korea was formed after WWII and the end of the Japanese occupation. It was split at the 38th parallel as part of a UN arrangement, to be administered by the US in the South (just like in M*A*S"H) and the Soviet Union in the North since the two couldn't agree on how to run it. Working with the Soviets, a Communist regime was set up. Kim Il-Sung became leader in 1948. Shortly thereafter, he and Stalin decided to start the Korean War. 4 million soldiers and civilians died. In 1953 the war ended THE CRAZIEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD with no winner and a 2.5 mile wide demilitarized zone separates North from South.

Citizens have the right to vote at 17, but there's only one party to vote for. The state runs re-education camps to hold as many as 50,000 political prisoners guilty of crimes. North Korea ranks amongst the worst human rights offenders in the world.

Kim Jong-I| is not "officially" the President of North Korea. His dead father declared him the "Eternal President" before he died. However, his official biography says he was born on sacred Baektul Mountain under a double rainbow. (That's kind of crazy, but it doesn't stop there.) His biography also says he doesn't defecate or urinate like other people. For his first game of golf, official reports say he shot 38 under par and got 11 holes in one. He planned to solve hunger in North Korea by breeding giant rabbits. He was once the world's single largest buyer of Hennessy, importing $700,000 worth per year. Workers inspect every grain of rice he eats to ensure exact size and color. He injects himself with the blood of virgins, reportedly to stay young. Citizens are told he and his father created the world and control the weather. At 5'3", he hates being short. So much so, he had all the short people in Pyongyang sent to uninhabited islands so their shortness wouldn't infect future generations.
