So looking at the sourced Wiki page for "Corruptions Perceptions Index," it's basically a list of countries that are or were victimized by imperialism. Makes sense, since all but two of the surveyed "institutions" are western banks. "Why then, does this country I embargo and blockade simply not have a stable economy anyway?"

I don't get the recognised country one. How can Taiwan and China both be least recognised? Surely if most countries don't recognise Taiwan, they accept China.

Because almost all countries do recognise North Korea. There are only three that don't, whereas there are fifteen that don't recognise China (fourteen of which recognise Taiwan).

The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland also has a cardinal direction in its name, right?

Not in its common name. Democratic People's Republic of Korea doesn't have a cardinal direction, so we couldn't be looking for ones with a cardinal direction in their proper name.

I'm confused by the border question. Surely Denmark-Germany or Qatar-Saudi Arabia have a smaller border?

It's probably referring to the 17km border with Russia, not the one dividing the Korean peninsula.

So why does the North Korean government state that they think that the happiest people in the World are the Chinese? (One presumes that that is the stated opinion of the government, not the people.)

The international border needs to be clarified that it's between two countries (maybe specify N Korea - Russia).
