As a very closed country, North Korea also applies a number of strict rules that are quite strange. The country, which was formed right after World War II, has a population of about 25 million people, and has been ruled by 3 men from the same family since 1948. Kim Il Sung was North Korea’s first leader until he died in 1994. Power then passed to Kim Jong Il and Kim Jong Un. Although the leader has changed, some strange North Korean rules remain unchanged such as a ban on consuming Coca-Cola and severe penalties for folding newspapers.
1. Punishment of 3 generations
One of the harshest punishments in North Korea. If one person commits a crime and is sent to prison, his family will also be imprisoned with him. This rule is believed to have existed since the 1980s to eliminate the “seed” of enemy developments.
