15 fascinating facts about North Korea

5. The North Korean leader Kim Jong Un had female staff inspect each grain of rice

The current leader of North Korea makes female staff members to check each grain of rice to see whether they are all of the same color, length and weight, in order to make sure everything is according to standards. He didn’t care as much for the rice other people ate, but for him it had to be perfect, and each grain needed to be identical to the others. This obsessive leader had to be uniform and all the grains had to be thoroughly checked so that there wouldn’t be any irregularities (or there would be some trouble for the female staff members in charge of making sure the standard is adhered to). Also, all the rice he ate had to be taken from the trees from Mt Paektu where he was born, and  he wouldn’t have it otherwise.
