About North Korea

North Korea is a totalitarian Stalinist dictatorship and the most militarized nation in the world. It is home to 5 People Groups, 2 of whom remain unreached according to the Joshua Project. The largest People Group is the Koreans; in North Korea, the government controls all aspects of Korean life. Most forms of entertainment are supported and controlled by the government. A mixture of Confucian thought, Buddhism, and shamanism was previously dominant among the Koreans, but has been officially repressed since 1945. The only officially sanctioned religion is Cheondogyo or worship of deceased dictator Kim Il-Sung. North Korea is very repressive and it is hard to say anything about Christianity in North Korea except that an underground Church does survive.
