ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the social and political condition of North Korea. The Korean Peninsula is divided into two countries: North Korea and South Korea. The Communist North invaded the South in 1950, starting the Korean War. The U.S. and other United Nations member nations sent troops to push back North Korean military forces. The U.S. has accused North Korea of possessing nuclear weapons. Citizens are not allowed to oppose the rule of the Communist Party which is called the Korean Workers' Party. North Korea's economy is dependent on heavy industry, including iron, steel, and machinery.
