Society

The Neolithic period, Bronze Age, and then the Iron Age were three of the first eras in Ancient Korea. During the Goryeo period, laws were created, a civil service system was introduced, and culture flourished under Buddhism influence. Later, dynasties and kings were involved in Korean society. After WWII, Korea had a provisional government. The split of North and South Korea led to two different societies: South Korea was liberalized with a prospering economy; North Korea was maintained by military rule and the economy was heavily dependent on foreign aid.

Today in North Korea, media and contact with the outside is very limited. It is led by Kim Jong Un, a dictator whom every North Korean is forced to praise. South Korea on the other hand is a constitutional republic which means they have a president and a prime minister. They are not too far off from the United States.

Korea Today

They are trying to keep as many trees up as possible but the only actual wilderness left in south Korea is in the mountains. South Korea has about 21 national parks in the middle of cities and towns. South Korea population is around 50.22 million and North Korea's population is around 24.9 million.
