The Dictatorship of United great Korea is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Kim Jong-un with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, pith helmet sales, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.227 billion United great Koreans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order and Education are also considered important, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pyjong. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient United great Korean economy, worth a remarkable 3,949 trillion Wonis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 480,110 Wonis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Military spending recently hit a new high, invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie, wilderness-dwelling hermits are surprised to find railway stations on their front doorsteps, and real chickens replace rooster weather vanes on inner-city rooftop gardens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United great Korea's national animal is the Owl, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

United great Korea is ranked 142,274th in the world and 3,734th in the West Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring zero on the Clooney Contribution Index.
