After the recent death of Kim Jong-Il, I learned something that gave me one more reason to be glad I was not born in North Korea. What?

A very basic question, but I want to avoid FAs: Did you learn something about North Korea?

Is it related to...
politics?
economy?
climate?
health?
education?
the military?

Is it something that is only true for North Korea? for other Communist states? for other states?

Is it related to...
politics?
economy?
climate?
health?
education?
the military? None of these

Is it something that is only true for North Korea? Probably and hopefully for other Communist states? for other states?

Did you learn something about Kim Jong-Il? His father? His son? Anyone else from his family?

Is it related to his actual biography?
To his "biography" as it is told by the government (that he was born under a double rainbow, that he doesn't pee, that he finished his first round of golf with 38 under par...)?
To the circumstances of his death?

Is it related to his actual biography? Apparently. I found this on multiple web pages citing weird but true facts about KJI.
To his "biography" as it is told by the government (that he was born under a double rainbow, that he doesn't pee, that he finished his first round of golf with 38 under par...)? No, but it is definitely weird.
To the circumstances of his death? No

is it that he's written 1500 books?

actually I think not peeing or pooing is the best fact.

is it to do with his person? his lifestyle? his upbringing? education? beliefs?

I think he's a terrific fan of some particular movie star or pop star? and has all their work...

I don't suppose he was immortal? :oD

is it that he didn't cry?

is it about the size or shape of any part of his body? is it about a physical ability? a mental one?

Is it relevant that he wanted to get rid of all short people in North Korea by sending them to camps or something like that (if I remember correctly)? Relevant that you are short, too, and that he would have sent you there?

Yes; what I read was that his sensitivity about his height (read: lack of it) is what set off this idea.
