Oficially known as Democratic People's Republic of Korea, or DPRK, the eastern Asian nation of North Korea was divided from South Korea in 1945, following World War II, when the Soviet Union occupied the north and the United States occupied the south. The Korean War, fought from 1950 to 1953, ended in an armistice, but no peace treaty was ever signed, so they are still officially at war with one another.
