When yes means no

China is called "The peoples republic of China." I don't see the people having any say in anything over there, just government control and fear mongering. Lots of countries and groups use familiar good sounding in principle names to hide what they really are. North Korea is not an example of socialism, it's an example of a tyrannical dictatorship by a royal family that care so little for it's own people that they are starving to death.
It's actually a terrible way to rule long term. You need subjects to be a king. Those subjects die and you have nothing. But I think the Kim family is legitimately mad if not psychopathic which would aid their short sighted stupidity and endless cruelty.
