Transcript of KOREA
25 million people live in North Korea (2013). North Korea has 120,410 square kilometers of land.
51 million people live in South Korea (April 2014). South Korea has 98,190 square kilometers of land.
Buddhism,Protestantism and Catholicism are the three dominant religions in both North and South Korea. 43% of the population practice Buddhism, 34.5% practice Protestantism and 20.6% practice Catholicism. The remaining 1.9% practice other religions (2005).
Korean food is incomplete without Kimchi. Kimchi is a traditional dish served in Korea. Kimchi is cabbage fermented with an anchovy paste and red chilli sauce. Similar to the Japanese, Koreans also eat rice with every meal.
Korean tradition considers bowing as the equivalent of a handshake. When you bow it shows respect and gratitude towards the person you are meeting. Younger generations have been influenced by western culture and ever more frequently shake hands first but then still bow.
North Korea is a very mountainous country. The mountain range, T'aebaek-san (san means mountain in Korea) covers the majority of North Korea. It then extends to the centre of the eastern peninsula.
In South Korea, forest accounts for 65% of the land mass. In South Korea there is the Sobaek mountain range. It is 350 kilometers long and is south west from T'aebaek mountain. North Korea shares their border with China and Russia. The Yalu River separates them. In North Korea barely 1 fifth of it's land are plains. Few of the mountains in North Korea are high, or big, compared to other mountains in Asia, but there are very few places where mountains cannot be seen from.
South Korea lives in constant fear that war will be declared by North Korea at any moment. This threat whilst impacting on South Korea also has significant consequences for North Korea as humanitarian aid has been denied because of this. As they are a poor country, this affects them immensely.
North Korea's education system is very unique. Their curriculum is largely based towards educating/strengthening their belief in the countries political beliefs. In South Korea education is more like Australia where it is based on literacy and numeracy. South Korea have failed to attract a large number of students to have an education of trades.
In North Korea instead of going to a hospital to get medicine when you are sick, it is more common to go to their local black market doctor instead. Or they might go to a private home to get their medicine. In South Korea people would go to hospitals, much like we do here in Australia, as they have a high quality healthcare system.
North Korea has decided to hold off on its nuclear development in return for food aid. North Korean land is not ideal for farming, so they are constantly short of food. South Korea, like other developed countries, has no food shortages.
In North Korea, energy has long been a problem. Though the Juche Tower in Pyongyang is lit up of a night normal people do not have access to electricity of a night. South Korea does not have this problem. Electricity is available to normal people just like Australia.
It is nearly impossible to find exact statistics for North Korea as they are a very secretive country. The government says what can and can't go worldwide. But, from what I read there seems to be a lot of homeless people in North Korea. In South Korea .008% of their population is homeless. Compare that to Australia where .45% of our population is homeless. That means that Australia has 57x more homeless people than South Korea.
North Korea's GDP (Gross Domestic Product) is approximately $40 billion. Compare that to South Korea's GDP which is 1.2 trillion. Compare that to Australia's GDP which is 1.5 trillion.
In North Korea cars are not the norm. It is estimated that there are 20 000-250 000 cars are in use across North Korea. With a population of 25 million that means that there is approximately one car in every thousand people. In south Korea there are approximately 20 000 000 cars in use. that means that there are about 440 cars in every 1000 people. compare that to Australia. In Australia we have 17.6 million cars in use. That means that there is approximately 717 cars in every 100 people. We have a population of 24 million people.
In North and South Korea their waste system is very organized. There are separate bins for different items. There is a recycling bin, a bin for food scraps, non recyclable items bin and a bin for items such as batteries, mobile phones and unused medication. There is also a bin for general waste, such as brooms hoses rice cookers, clocks or window frames. Compare Australia to Korea. We can choose if we recycle items or just chuck it all in the bin. If we were in Korea we would get fined for doing that.
In North Korea 25% of the country does not have safe drinking water. In an effort to provide North Koreans with safe drinking water there was a stand in the streets handing out clean drinking water. In South Korea water is safe to drink in the major centre's but is not recommended elsewhere in the country .

In North Korea there are very few small animals, like birds and frogs. This was because people caught and ate them due to a ver bad famine in the 1990's. In both countries water is unclean because sewage has been discharged into their water. This means that they are left with less safe drinking water..
Both North and South Korea have excellent recycling programs meaning the environment is better looked after. A s South Korea has a great climate for rice, this leads to food production. This is why South Korea has enough food for it's entire population.
The currency in North and South Korea is called Korean Won. One Korean Won equals $0.0011 Australian dollar. This means that 10 Korean Won make one Australian cent, and that 1000 Won makes $1. The largest note in Korea is 50,000 Won, and the smallest is a 100 Won coin. For a loaf of bread, it would cost 6, 500 Won.
