KCNA Central Year Book: America through North Korean eyes

SEOUL – Since 1949, the KCNA has published a yearly review of domestic and world events, important documents and country profiles in its very own version of the CIA World Factbook: the Korean Central Year Book.

Asides from the usual reports on the great exploits of the Great Leaders, the Central Year Book is filled with detailed reports on all the countries of the world – the ones it recognizes, that is (there is no section on Taiwan, for instance).
