VIVA – Life in North Korea is too different from South Korea. North Korea is known as a closed country that does not want to have contact with foreigners. This country also does not allow information about its country to be heard by other countries and vice versa.

North Korea is a country located in East Asia with the capital city of Pyongyang. This country has various strange facts and rarely people know. Well, here’s a list of facts about North Korea.

1. North Korea was Founded in 1948

It was founded on October 3, 1948. The country's official name is the DPRK or the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. If you know a lot about their culture and way of life, their local name is Choson or “Choson-minjujuui-inmin-koughwaguk”.

2. The Trust of North Korea is the Only One Country

North Koreans believe that their country is one country. The country removed South Korea from the picture maps.

All the maps at the school show only Pyongyang as the capital. Although the two countries are heading towards unification, it is not without reason that the two countries are in such a status at this time.

North Korea is 80% covered with plateaus and mountains. So, when heavy rains or droughts hit, food scarcity is also widespread. This is because of the limited amount of their agricultural land affected.

In the 1990s, 2.5 million people died of starvation. This is a ratio of one in ten North Koreans. According to a recent report, at least two-thirds of the population doesn't have the slightest idea of ??where they can get their next meal.
