Kim Il-sung
By Vickie Chao

1     Caption: The picture shows Kim Jong Il, 3 years old, with father, Kim Il-sung, and mother, Kim Jong Suk.
2     Democratic People's Republic of Korea is better known as North Korea. It is one of the world's poorest countries. It is also one of the least understood and most isolated countries. There is nothing about it that is remotely democratic. Despite its name, it is an absolute totalitarian state.
3     The country was founded on September 9, 1948. North Korea is found on the northern half of the Korean Peninsula. For more than six decades, it has never given up trying to take over its southern neighbor. The Republic of Korea, or South Korea, fought a war in the early 1950s to remain free. The two countries are divided by the famous 38th parallel north. In many ways, they are the opposites of two extremes. South Korea is prosperous. North Korea is poor. South Korea is industrialized and technologically advanced. North Korea does not even have a stable supply of electricity. People in South Korea can express their opinions without fear of retribution. People in North Korea are better off keeping their thoughts to themselves.
