The People's Republic of Korea is a country that is a Satellite State of China. It is ruled by Kim Il Sung and has ferocious technology especially for a country with a backwards economy with only a technologically advanced military and Head of State. National Unity starts at 60. Fairly large army in terms of number of units. Reasonably strong industry.

National Unity starts at 60. Fairly large army in terms of number of units. Reasonably strong industry.

Technology With lots of hills and mountains there is likely very little need for armour. Focus on infantry and supporting Doctrines and Industrial technologies.

Distribution of Leadership Surprisingly strong at 9+ Leadership to distribute. This can of course increase with proper research of Education et c.

I recommend: 7 Leadership allocated for research 2 Leadership for Spies to get domestic spies up to 10 to raise Unity then shift these 2 to produce Officers will have you in a comparatively strong position around mid-1937 when war with Japan is likely.

Diplomacy Alliances You start allied with Nationalist China. No reason to change this.

Decisions Accept the Call to Arms or not when Japan and China go to war.

Political Parties

Communist definitely

Intelligence Get domestic spies up to 10. Set them to work raising National Unity to allow more efficient Laws and resist potential defeats in wars.

Maybe spend some time hunting foreign spies too if you are feeling happy with your National Unity.

Economy Trading Not extremely good or bad. Trade Metal from China. Trade Rares from Romania. This should keep you afloat for quite a while.

Industrial Production Once again, surprisingly strong industrial base, starting out at 28 IC. Greatly improves when war starts.

Military Army Lots of infantry divisions and militia at start. Very few commanders, these do not increase when war happens as far as I can see. All divisions contain 2 brigades only. Might need strengthening to ensure proper power.

Navy A single Transport flotilla at start. Increase if you want a overseas Empire.

Air Force A single Interceptor wing at start.

War War with Japan This will be tough as Japan will likely kick your ass within days. If you get lucky in almost beating them, that is not a good sign for you as they will call America for help.

War with South Korea It's recommended you take this route, as you will likely not beat Japan, and America gets involved to beat you.
