We will keep sending them reminders even after the stars burn out. Small passive aggressive reminders until the end of time.
We are Sweden, this will never stop! :D

Sweden: Hey, uh, North Korea, didn't want to bother you or anything, but uh, still kinda waiting on that money that you owe-
North Korea: *hisses, scurries into the shadows*
Sweden: Okay, I'll come back later, if you need more time.

Nice snarky article about it here:

http://jalopnik.com/north-korea-still-owes-393-000-000-for-volvos-it-bough-1629521713

"Volvo was one of the first to take advantage of this incredible opportunity, shipping 1000 Volvo 144s to the Hermit Kingdom, along with, presumably, a bill which then-leader Kim Il-Sung promptly got a crack team of highly trained ignorers to forget about."

That's quite a lot for 1,000 cars.
€300m/1000 = €300k per car!
They've either handmade the cars or they're just jacking up the prices.

Well, as communists (or pretend-communists), they don't accept capitalism. I'm actually not very surprised that they would do this.

All communists are pretend communists. If you don't believe me try getting one to share with you.

Maybe Sweden should, ehm, back off of the reminders? Please, North Korea is unstable and insane and is likely to nuke the US or South Korea or Japan because of it, because they are crazy.
