Over the 1950s and 60s, the communist North attacked the anti-communist South, and the United States got involved in what became a disastrous war for all involved. A 1973 cease-fire agreement allowed the American troops to withdraw and brought about a return to communism. The country is known for little to no civil liberties under its communist dictatorship. Personal income tax rate is 35 percent and corporate tax rate is at 22 percent. Public debt is over 62 percent of the GDP.
