When your neighbours are Kim Jung-Un-level crazy, you'd better make sure your defences are bigger and badder than anything they can throw at you. Or at least just as crazy, like South Korea's K2 Black Panther's parachute munitions.
How could living in North Korea be worse? Hmm. Maybe if your dinner caught on fire every night, or clothes were made out of a cactus, or if using a phone potentially earned you the death penalty. Sounds about right!
