Capital city of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (North Korea). Kim Jong-il lives here.

Hella fucked up, and is proud to show off its subway system and 4-laned highway. Psychotic dictatorship rules over people that don't even know people have walked on the moon. People there hate the US, Japan, South Korea, and UN with fiery passion.

Nobody wants to go there.
