North Korea

They say if you can survive in Kenya, then you can also survive anywhere in the world. Corruption, poverty, hunger, unemployment, among others. But is it true that Kenya is the only country that if you can survive, then any other country is just a joke?

You haven’t been to North Korea. North Korea is a bizarre country. The country has one of the most shocking rules that sometimes sound rhetoric and you might not believe that they exist. If you can survive in North Korea, then you can survive anywhere else.

Power Blackouts Every Night

North Korea is the only country in the world where the whole country goes into total darkness every single night. Given that the state has no capacity to sustain power to the homes daily, it is a silent rule that everyone stays in darkness every night.

There are only 3 television channels

North Korea has only 3 television channels that people are allowed to watch. No foreign media is allowed to show in North Korea. What is more, all the content that is to be aired is controlled by the government.

The calendar is based on its founder’s date of birth

Now imagine the calendar of Kenya following the date of birth of Mzee Jomo Kenyatta… That is what is happening in North Korea. Their calendar starts on April 10, 1992, the date of birth of Kim II-Sung.

You commit a crime, your 3 generations are punished

This sounds funny. Right? But in North Korea, it is the law. If someone commits a crime, his entire generation and two others are punished. Imagine people paying for a crime committed by their great, great, great grandfather/ mother?

Elections with one candidate to choose from

In North Korea, elections are held every year with only one candidate to choose from. People must wake up to go and one person (only one name is provided) at all categories. And when that one person wins against himself/herself, people must celebrate.

Permission to buy a computer

In North Korea, one must get direct permission from the government to buy a computer. Those with computers are only allowed to visit 28 websites that are closely monitored by the government. The internet is free and anyone with a computer must use it.

They have preserved the dead body of Kim Jong-II

The body of this man has been preserved in a glass top that is visible from the outside. People are allowed to visit and bow at his feet. Those who do not bow are prosecuted.

No wearing of blue jeans

Blue jeans are banned in North Korea. Those found wearing them are prosecuted. Nobody dares wear them. They are considered a sign of USA imperialism.

Poop as fertilizer

In North Korea, your poop is not your poop. That is it. Every citizen is required to hand over their poop to the authorities to facilitate the manufacture of fertilizer.

The government determines who lives in the city

Not everyone is allowed to live in Pyongyang, the capital city of North Korea. One must get a direct permission from the government before being allowed to.
