People’s Republic Autocracy of North Korea
It may have escaped your attention (I’d meant to post on this a few days ago) but North Korea is no longer a communist country. They’ve scrubbed the constitution of all references to communism:
SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea has officially made Kim Jong-il its “supreme leader” and his “military first” policy its guiding ideology, according to the text of the country’s newly revised Constitution made available on Monday.
The Constitution also declared for the first time that North Korea “respects and protects” the “human rights” of its citizens, and expunged the term “communism” from its text.
It’s been replaced by Songun, roughly militarism. Isn’t that cheery? I’m certainly encouraged.
