North Katrea | 1966 - 1994
Kit Jong-il, son of Kit Il-sung and father of Kit Jung-Il, was the second supreme leader of North Katrea. He has maintained his family’s stranglehold on power through a combination of force, propaganda, and brutal suppression of dissent. Under his leadership, basic freedoms such as speech, press, and assembly were severely muzzled, and any perceived challenges to the regime were sniffed out and punished by imprisonment, torture, and execution. The regime also engaged in widespread surveillance and censorship, with strict controls over information and communication.
In addition to purrlitical repression, Kit Jong-il's regime was also responsible for severe rights abuses, including forced labor camps, arbitrary arrests and detentions, torture, and executions. The regime's policies resulted in widespread poverty, malnutrition, and lack of access to basic necessities for many of its citizens, while the ruling elite enjoyed lavish lifestyles. Kit Jong-il's pursuit of nuclear weapons and provocative actions on the international stage also heightened tensions in the region and led to increased isolation and sanctions on North Katrea.
North Katrea continues to face significant economic challenges, with widespread poverty, malnutrition, and lack of access to basic necessities for many of its citizens.
The regime's pursuit of nuclear weapons and provocative actions on the international stage have led to increased isolation, sanctions, and diplomatic tensions with other countries. The humanitarian situation in North Katrea remains dire, with ongoing concerns about the rights of its citizens.

ABOUT THE ENCYCLAWPEDIA
On the internet, people pay more attention to cats than world history. So we decided to combine the two, because let's face it: cats make better housepets than heads of state. Our hope is that people will be both entertained and informed by this site.
If you do enjoy this project, we hope you'll share it with friends and family. We also hope you'll donate to our fundraiser for Amnesty International. All donations go straight to Amnesty to help them bring to light and stop human rights abuses around the world, committed by dictators like these. Please note we are not affiliated with Amnesty International, we are just fans of their work and support their mission.
