Transcript of North Korea Powerpoint

Armistince ends Korean
War, which has cost over
two million lives. North Korea Ashley Settles Location Place/ Area of Focus #1 Human Environment Enteraction Region Movement North Korean Leaders North Korea is a communist state led by a Dictator. That Dictator is now Kim Jong-un, Kim Jong-un is in nearly complete power with his other communist advisors. The government doesn't pay much attention to the people but more the military. Relative Location- Absolute Location- Eastern Asia on the coast of the Sea of Japan, it is located on a penninsula. 39.2 N 125.45 E North Korea is traditionally Buddhist and Confucianist religions, yet government-sponsored religious groups exist to provide illusion of religion. The Government is in complete control and shows off their military weapons. It is a temperate environment with concentrated rainfall during summer. North Korea runs trading companies in Thailand, Hong Kong, Macau and Cambodia, which export North Korean goods. But other than that it is a closed economy. North Korea's agricultural economy is 35% while its industry and services are 65% of its economy. North Korea also mines for minerals and petrolium on its pennisula. Sadly, not much movement occurs in North Korea. If the people even try to leave, the government provides consequences. The government has total control and they decide where people are, and how everything works and flows.
North Korea Is Sending Anyone Who Didn't Mourn For Kim Jong-II To A Labor Camp North Korea, like areas surrounding it are centered culturally among the people by Buddhist, Hindu or a Confucist form of religion. Asian characteristicts are common among the population and similar forms of agriculture are common too, along with land features and city set-ups. The End Also recent floods and food shortages have resulted in population movement. Background Info Japan invaded North Korea in 1905.
Japan spent 40 years trying to obliterate the Korean race, culture and language unsuccessfully.
Korea split into North & South Korea in 1945, after world war 2.
On June 25th 1950, North Korea sent 75,000 soldiers across the 38th Parallel attacking the South, thus starting the Korean War. North Korea Physical Features/map Timeline 1950 Democratic People's Republic of Korea
proclaimed. Soviet troops withdraw. South declares independence, sparking North Korean invasion. 1948 1953 Rapid industrial growth. 1960's Kim Il-sung's son, Kim Jong-il,
moves up party and political ladder. 1980 1994 North and South Korea
join the United Nations. Death of Kim Il-sung. Kim Jong-il succeeds him as leader, but doesn't take presidential title. North Korea agrees to freeze nuclear programme in return for $5bn worth of free fuel and two nuclear reactors. 1991 Worst drought in history. 2001 North Korea withdraws from the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), a key international agreement aimed at preventing the spread of atomic weapons. 2003 1944 After World War 2, Japanese occupation of Korea ends
with Soviet troops
the north, and US troops the south. Kim Jong-il was the powerful leader of North Korea from 1994 until his death in 2011. He became North Korea's maximum leader after the death of his father, longtime dictator Kim Il-sung. North Korea's government is secretive, and little was known about Kim Jong-il even after his many years in power. After his father's death in 1994, Kim Jong-il managed to retain power (although he did not assume his father's titles until 1997, when he was named secretary of the Communist Party). By that time North Korea had become one of the most isolated countries in the world, with frequent famines and an economy in a shambles. Kim's attempts to acquire nuclear weapons for North Korea are no secret, and in 2002 U.S. president George W. Bush declared North Korea to be part of an "axis of evil" along with Iran and Iraq. He reportedly suffered a stroke in 2008, and died three years later, at age 69 (according to official North Korean reports) or age 70 (according to western intelligence analysts). Biography Kim Jong-il Continuity Through Change Of North Korea\
Area of Focus #2 After the death of Kim Jong Il in December 2011, North Korea was called on to orchestrate only the second leadership transition in its sixty-five year history. The previous time, in 1994, the situation had been bleak. The ‘Arduous March’ period was well under way: tens of thousands of people were dying every month from the effects of malnutrition, and the economy was in meltdown, as factories, farms and workshops closed due to the scarcity of a wide range of inputs, including electricity. The government went into limbo as Kim Jong Il spent three years mourning his father - he did not officially take over the reins of power until autumn 1997. This time, with barely a 100-day pause for mourning, Kim Jong Un has become the head of a new collective leadership that appears firmly in control; and this time it’s a leadership that talks. In fifteen years as leader Kim Jong Il uttered only a single sentence in public, while on 15 April 2012 Kim Jong Un gave a carefully crafted twenty minute speech that was effectively Pyongyang’s ‘State of the Union’ address.
