“Let’s See What We Have Here”

Thanks to lowlowprices for raising my awareness of the official FAQ for North Korea. Just how FA are some of these Q, exactly?

1. Can I get a signed photograph from Leader Kim Jong-Il? [1]

The KFA Shop is offering this article. Please visit this webpage.

2. Can I send a letter to North Korea and get a penpal in North Korea?

You can send the letter if you have an valid address and contact person. We provide no service for penpal friends.

3. Can I emigrate to North Korea and live in North Korea? [2]

It’s possible only in very special situations and having honor/merits. You must send a request letter stating your reasons, together with your complete CV, copy of your passport and certificates to korea@korea-dpr.com .

4. Can I work in North Korea as a teacher/interpreter/(other)?


9. Can I join the Korean People’s Army?

No, only Korean nationals with DPRK citizenship.

10. I’ve heard that everbody starves in North Korea. How is the food situation?

It is no secret that there was a crisis during the mid 1990s in the DPRK... [3]

13. Is North Korea a dictatorship?

No, the DPRK is a single-united-party constitutional democracy guaranteeing freedom of speech and assembly to all citizens. [4]
[1] Or should that be “Kim Jong-Dead”? Am I right? ^

[2] I am slightly concerned that “emigrating” to North Korea and “living” there appear to be two different options. Is that because they offer a cheap deal where you emigrate to the country but are then immediately executed? ^

[3] I seem to recall that it was meant to be a pretty big secret at the time.

[4] When was the last time a dictatorship actually admitted it was a dictatorship? We need an awareness campaign to remove the stigma from the word so that these countries can proudly proclaim their status.

Bah, I'm not going if I can't join the army.

When I do finally take over (everything), I promise I will make no bones about being a Dictator.

Well. I might literally make some bones over the issue.

But I won't pretend to be a democracy. Which should come as quite a relief.

Dictatrix, surely?

As long as you don't smite me in a dodgy American accent like Philip Glenister...
