Capitalism v. Dictatorship

The Korean War ended in an armistice in 1953.  The two Koreas, split by the 38th parallel, followed completely different paths over the following 60 years.  The South embraced a free-market capitalistic society while the North fell under the rule of a terrible dictator, Kim II-sung. 

I’m not sure why Google Maps doesn’t list any roads or cities except for the capital city of Pyongyang.  Surely there are major freeways linking the different parts of the country, and other cities large enough to warrant placement on a map.  But then again, maybe not.  

I prefer capitalism.
