    Yeah...you do get the sense that its a bit of a crazy place. But the weirdest thing is that Pyongyang just feels utterly empty. The disparity with Seoul is incredible,

    Interesting to see that Zimbabwe's popular. Maybe all of the Western media harping on about how bad Mugabe is has clouded my judgment about the state.

    North Korea has a hot female army. Enough said.



    Plus the other countries are in Africa so I'd get fried to a crisp under the African sun.

    Uganda, mainly by process of elimination, because
    - North Korea - you can't leave-
    - Zimbabwe - as a white Briton I'm not sure I'd be welcomed by Mugabe (!)
    - Somalia - no functioning government
    - Afghanistan - I'm a woman

    Uganda would have been eliminated for me if I was gay, but I'm not so it's probably the least bad option

    If I had money, North Korea. Presuming i'd be a lowly peasant I'd choose Zimbabwe.
    You couldn't do anything with that money there. One word and the government can murder you. The people live in abject poverty and there are concentration camps in North Korea.

    Why is Uganda on this list? Actually, Zimbabwe shouldn't even be on the list. And I'd hazard a guess that Afganistan is probably not that bad either.

    Western propaganda is real.
