North Korea claims that they are the happiest nation in the world

1st: China, 2nd: DPRK, 3rd: Cuba, 152nd : South Korea, 203rd: USA
Now they have really gone out of materials to make up. This image surfaced on a Chinese website, and it's a screenshot of North Korea Central TV. They claim that China is the happiest country in the world (100/100), North Korea being the 2nd happiest (98/100), and so on.

South Korea is apparently the 152nd happiest in the world (18/100), and USA is the 203rd (no score).

This has got to be the most screwed up happiness scale. Do North Koreans actually buy this kind of crap?

  1. Well, in most Western surveys South Korea is actually one of the unhappiest places on Earth. With the highest suicide rates in the world.

    For example in this New York Times story:

    China propagandizes and America discriminates in regards to Koreans. Most new stories about race or society are one-sided or biased.
