North Korea Introduction

Korea is a land in eastern Asia that consists of two states. One is the Republic of Korea--usually called South Korea. Seoul is its capital and largest city.
The other is the Democratic People's Republic of Korea--commonly called North Korea.

Pyongyang is its capital and largest city. North Korea has a Communist government. South Korea has a government that is strongly anti-Communist.

A Short Background

Following World War II, Korea was split into a northern, communist half and a southern, Western-oriented half. KIM Chong-il has ruled North Korea since his father and the country's founder, president KIM Il-song, died in 1994.

After decades of mismanagement, the North relies heavily on international food aid to feed its population, while continuing to expend resources to maintain an army of about 1 million.

North Korea's long-range missile development and research into nuclear and chemical weapons are of major concern to the international community.
