North Korea (Korean: 북한) is a nation situated in East Asia, occupying the northern half of the Korean Peninsula. Its capital city, Pyongyang, lies in the north of the country, in the region called Pyongan. North Korea was added to the New World on 12 May 2009 and is thus the newest and most exciting nation in Asia, offering limitless opportunities for those who choose to settle on the wild frontiers of eRepublik.
Since real life North Korea is currently trapped in the 1950's, there are no actual North Koreans in eRepublik. So the majority of the population is made up of American and European migrants, with the first and only language being English. Unlike most new nations, it escaped the usual robberies and political sabotage performed by older established nations. This was only possible because of the brave heroics and organizational skills of Afanasiy Drago, who lead the Fires of Heaven and purged the Hungarian cancer from the land. Because of this, North Korea has a well functioning economy and government operating only for the benefit of North Korean settlers.
