North Korea celebrates completion of Samjiyon City, a ’socialist utopia’

Located near the mountains where Kim Jong Un’s family claims it’s roots, the city is being called by State media as an ’epitome of modern civilization’. A signature construction and economic initiative of the dictator, defectors and human rights activists say the city is built by ’slave labor’. The state had to form youth labor brigades, which allegedly were underpaid, underfed and over-worked.

Modernity is highly decadent. Kim has a fairly low standard to pass. If he wants a city beyond compare, well.... let's say Kim would need to rebrand himself and do the "undoable"; though I doubt anybody here understands what I mean (no, it does not involve nuking anybody, transitioning North Korea to a democracy, or creating a Korean Reich).
