Statistics on North Korea

I was referred to a website, nationmaster.com, that provides a wide-range of statistics on every country. According to this website, North Korea is first for military expenditures in dollar figures. Although it is not surprising that North Korea emphasizes military power, I was unaware that North Korea came in first in this category.

For the statistics, click here and scroll to the lower portion of the site to view the statistics on North Korea.

Wow that is very interesting. I also see that they provide a figure for GDP. The idiot's guide says this is hard to do accurately. North Korea is first in military expenditures per GDP dollar- This is appalling considering North Korea's GDP is a mere $990.80 per person. Spend some money on the people!!!
