North Korea, is a country in East Asia, in the northern part of the Korean Peninsula. The name Korea is derived from the Kingdom of Goguryeo, also spelled as Koryŏ. Pyongyang is both the nation’s capital as well as its largest city, with a population just over 2.5 million. To the north and northwest the country is bordered by China and by Russia along the Amnok and Tumen rivers. The country is bordered to the south by South Korea, with the heavily-fortified Korean Demilitarized Zone separating the two.

Did you know?

North Korea bases its calendar on Kim Il-Sung’s date of birth: 15 April 1912. So in 2016 it is 104 in North Korea.
