    a) YES, North Korea is a socialist country with a socialist economy governed by the Communist Party.

    b) It is wrong to call a country by the politics of the country. Using that point of view, I could technically call the US a Fascist country (ultra right wing government with capitalism as its economic base). I do not think many Americans would lime that.

    c) Yes, North Korea has a strict and paranoid government, and justifiably so, as it is afraid of being attacked by South Korea and the US.

    d) Between 1948 when South Korea was illegally created and the late 1990's, South Korea was a right wing military dictatorship. It is slightly more democratic now, but still has many undemocratic laws.

    May have started out that way, but devolved into a totalitarian communist dictatorship as many do.

    And it's what will happen to America if the left has its way.

    Yes, the means of production are owned by the state and most services are state controlled.

    North Korea, officially the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, continues to be a Juche socialist state under the rule of the Workers' Party of Korea.

    In South Korea, communism remains illegal through the National Security Law.

    No, it is also not a communist country.

    North Korea's governance is comparable to a royal family.

    It is a totalitarian communist country.  Since communism is socialism with total one-party control, I suppose you can safely say that, yes, it is also socialist.

      Would you call Saudi Arabia communist or socialist? (It has a king) Russia also has one party control.
