The world witnesses North Korea as a horrific country, taking away the fundamental rights of its citizens. For decades North Korea has been one of the world's most secretive societies still under nominally communist rule.
The country emerged in 1948 amid the chaos following the end of the Second World War. Its history is dominated by its Great Leader, Kim Il-sung, who shaped political affairs for almost half a century.
Radio and TV sets in North Korea are pre-tuned to government stations that pump out a steady stream of propaganda.
The press and broadcasters - all of them under direct state control - serve up a menu of flattering reports about North Korea's leader. North Korea is one of the hardest countries for foreign media to cover.
