    North Korea is a necrocracy.

    To get technical, North Korea had announced in 1998 that Kim Il-Sung is now "Eternal President" so even though he is dead, he will always rule the Democratic Republic Of Korea, so the country is a necrocracy.

    That's actually vice-versa!

    Married women are instructed to keep their hair shorter, while single women have more options.

    That's actually vice-versa!

    It's actually true!

    It's a very particular process, but if you plan ahead, it's possible. You can't travel there straight from the United States, if you live there, instead you would need to fly to China and go from there.

    It's actually true!

    Japan!

    Japan taught Koreans that they were "subsets" of the Japanese race, and were treated brutally, comparable to the Nazis. Women were sold as sex slaves, men were tossed into the military, and both were even pressured to change their names to Japanese names, and 80% of Koreans did. (Source: http://afe.easia.columbia.edu/main_pop/kpct/kp_koreaimperialism.htm) Though this is often forgotten in history, this is a) one of the reasons why North Korea sees Japan as an enemy and b) why the Koreas split into two.
