Its a nation with a little above 20 million people. The national television's purpose of existence is to dedicate itself to educate people about the feats of its great leader. They describe that on the day of his birth there appeared a double rain bow and a bright star on the sky. He is hailed as a god like figure in the nation, a great patriot, a living saint and every other thing people got were gifts to the people from the Great Leader!
The great leader started his succession planning when he got a few health hick ups, so the process of starting to groom his favorite son was being executed to perfection. So the state media played it out well to show what the son is the great successor to take over the regime so that the throne stays within the family.
The nations greatest ally is China and today its also the biggest trading partner of that country. I am talking about North Korea! The nation that's making all news with the demise of its 'Great' Leader ( Great leader is actually the son of the Dear Leader, what will be his son's title). A secretive nation and at times it gives you goose bumps when you read about that country as painted by the western media. A nation that doesn't apparently have a mobile operator or access to internet but crucially has nuclear power. Interesting. Its always nice to read about North Korea.
