It sure is an insult to democracy when Democratic People's Republic of Korea refers to North Korea, and Republic of Korea refers to South Korea. There is nothing democratic about North Korea.

The less democratic a country is and the term Democratic appears in the full name, I am thinking to the Democratic Republic of Congo now.

@LadyDuck My goodness, that is the full name of Congo? I think the monkeys in Congo has more democracy than humans.

@scheng1 Why even call it "democratic" when there's not even democracy in North Korea with its state apparatus in charge?

And the joke is that US is a democracy, and yet they do not call themselves "The Democratic United States of America".

North Korea has no right to include Democracy in their name, it's a dictatorship. It's dictator is a twisted, evil, ugly inside and out man who starves his own people so he can live in luxury and decadence. I would love to see the North Korean people freed of this parasite within my lifetime.

@dragon54u North Korea should rightly be called the "Communist North Korea." In that country, the lives of people are worse than a dog. They have no freedom at all.

I think those who named the country did not know the meaning of "democracy".
