From the Paper:

"North Korea, also known as the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, is located on the northern part of the Korean Peninsula in Eastern Asia. The country's government is frequently described as a hereditary dictatorship or a Communist regime by outsiders, while the nation describes itself as a self-reliant state. Current leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea is Kim Jong-Un, son of the long standing former ruler, Kim Jong-Il. North Korea is frequently the subject of international controversy and criticism for its government style, human rights policies, and military activities. On April 13, 2012 The Democratic People's Republic of Korea, yet again, tested the patience of the international community by launching a long-range rocket into the air."
