RadioFreeAsia claim the pariah state’s starving population have a choice between supplying bonkers 100kg of human excrement or 300kg of compost EVERY DAY. The demand for manure means some workers have allegedly asked to be paid in POO rather than cash. A DPRK source said: “The entire population has been mobilized to produce manure as the first major task of the year. The authorities in each local region task factories, institutions and citizens groups with assigning production quotas to each individual. “They are demanding that each person produce 100kg of human feces per day, or about 3 tons per month. But how on earth can it be possible for one person to make 3 tons of human feces and deliver it?” Desperate citizens are reportedly trying to make up the deficit by buying excrement from specialist poo merchants.

The economy of North Korea is a centrally planned system, where the role of market allocation schemes is limited, though increasing. As of 2015 North Korea continues its basic adherence to a centrally planned command economy. There has been some economic liberalization, particularly after Kim Jong-un assumed the leadership in 2012, but reports conflict over particular legislation and enactment. The collapse of the Eastern Bloc from 1989 to 1991, particularly North Korea’s principal source of support, the Soviet Union, forced the North Korean economy to realign its foreign economic relations, including increased economic exchanges with South Korea. China is North Korea’s largest trading partner. North Korea’s ideology of Juche has resulted in the country pursuing autarky in an environment of international sanctions.

Estimating gross national product in North Korea is a difficult task because of a dearth of economic data and the problem of choosing an appropriate rate of exchange for the North Korean won, the nonconvertible North Korean currency. The South Korean government’s estimate placed North Korea’s GNP in 1991 at US$22.9 billion, or US$1,038 per capita. In contrast, South Korea posted US$237.9 billion of GNP and a per capita income of US$5,569 in 1991. North Korea’s GNP in 1991 showed a 5.2% decline from 1989, and preliminary indications were that the decline would continue. South Korea’s GNP, by contrast, expanded by 9.3% and 8.4%, respectively, in 1990 and 1991.

It is estimated that North Korea’s GNP nearly halved between 1990 and 1999. North Korean annual budget reports suggest state income roughly tripled between 2000 and 2014. By about 2010 external trade had returned to 1990 levels. The South Korea-based Bank of Korea estimated that over 2000 to 2013 average growth was 1.4% per year. It estimated that the real GDP of North Korea in 2015 was 30,805 billion South Korean won.
