    North Korea and its leader Kim Jung Un are a society of very overwhelming power. The citizens bow down to their leader and give him the power over themselves and their lives. North Korea also has prison camps that they send people who disobeyed them off to. At these camps there are distortions of thoughts that the government forces onto the people.

Its people are secluded and forced to praise their ruler, Kim Jong-un, or else they shall pay a dreadful price. Moreover, personally, I do not believe that Jong un’s people truly see and love him as this god-like figure.
