Have you ever wondered what happens behind the North Korean border? It’s one of the most secretive regimes in the world. However, thanks to defectors and spies, we have been able to get at least a small glimpse into daily life within the hermit kingdom of North Korea. These are 25 Everyday Activities That Are Illegal In North Korea.
Dishonoring the Leader
Basically, don’t say anything bad about the President…ever.

This one applies primarily to tourists…you can’t just take pictures of whatever you want. There are a lot of things and places that are off limits.
People aren’t allowed to move freely around the country. In fact, there is less than 1 car per 1000 people.
According to defectors, sarcasm is not a thing in North Korea. Whatever you say is taken seriously…so be very careful.
