Mysterious and sometimes terrifying, North Korea is perhaps the most secretive country on earth. Kim Jong Il rules as a dictator. He controls the world’s fifth largest army and plutonium for nuclear weapons. From the most militarized border on the planet to the actions of the man known as “Dear Leader,” it’s a world built on absolute conformity, full of government minders, and unimaginable horrors that drive people to risk their lives in daring escapes.
