Anyway, in North Korea noone would for example kidnap you for ransom money, like it can happen in Iran
What if you're from the UK?

Childish delusions.

Been there twice, wann go a third time. Neat although not rich country (but compare to crime ridden slums in your beautiful yet extremely dangerous Brazil, for example), hospitable, polite and exotic.

Very safe, btw. Disciplined and VERY SAFE.

Compare to favelas of Rio, the hell on earth where you can be robbed by almost any dick. White = an easy prey.

My strong ups for visiting N Korea.

Tourists are treated well because they bring lots of foreign currency and they contribute to improving the image of the whole nation. They are important to the NK government.
The only thing they would do is to make you leave the country if you misbehave extremely.

But US citizens can be used as a diplomatic leverage because NK knows that the US govt. negotiates if they have US prisoners. So there is little bit of risk for US citizens going there (of course, they are two countries at war)
