South Korea[]

The Korean peninsula, known today for its divided republics of North and South Korea, has been home to numerous kingdoms over the ages, some virtuous, some steeped in infamy. At times rivaling its powerful neighboring states of China and Japan, Korea was united under the rule of the Choson Dynasty for over 500 years. The turmoil of the Japanese occupation in the early 20th century, followed by the Korean War in 1950, would shatter this once sacred unity. From this strife, South Korea has emerged as a nation of increasing economic and cultural significance on a global scale. In contrast, the oppressive regime controlling the reclusive North Korean state is frequently the subject of international condemnation for its handling of human rights and diplomatic relations.

Park Chung-hee[]

Park Chung-hee was a military dictator who ruled South Korea between 1962 and 1979. Although his rule is viewed by many as being an obstacle to democratic progress, he is also attributed with making the most progress on South Korea's economy, which has lead to the country becoming a world power.

Dawn of Man[]

Hail to thee, president Park Chung-hee, leader of the Republic of Korea. You seized control of the country in a military coup, and founded the Fourth Republic of South Korea. You led the country to become one of the four 'Asian Tigers', opening overseas trade deals and improving relationships with other powers. You made your country into an export superpower, helping Korean corporations form chaebols for the benefit of your nation. However, many were unhappy with your rule, and in 1979, you were shot dead by the director of your own secret service.


Art by TPangolin

President, your people long for a return to economic greatness. Will you lead your country from a civil war to become an economic superpower? Will you use trade and diplomacy to make a name for your country in an ever advancing world? Will you build a civilisation that stands the test of time?

Introduction: Greetings leader, and welcome to the Republic of Korea, a place of great economic prosperity.

Introduction: Welcome, traveller, to South Korea. How may our mighty empire help you?

Introduction: Greetings, fellow leader. I am Park Chung-hee, leader of South Korea. I hope that there will be a great friendship between us in this world.

Defeat: How has my country fallen? We were proud and strong - you have taken that away from the world.

Events and Decisions[]

Establish the KCIA
I have a recommendation, Sir. Because our rule is slightly... let's say, 'controversial', it would be a good idea to create an agency that has the power to arrest and detain any individual who might be having thoughts about creating a coup against the state. What do you say?
  • Player must be South Korea
  • Must have discovered Radio
  • Must not have built the National Intelligence
  • Can only be enacted once
  • 2 Magistrates
  • Gold
  • The National Intelligence Agency is built in the Capital
  • -10% Gold in all cities other than the Capital.
  • Gold lost this way is added to the Capital's Gold output. The Gold added is magnified by Constabularies and Police Stations in the Cities.
  • Crime from Treason is eliminated from all Cities (w/ CiD)
  • Crime from Corruption is increased by 10% in all cities but the Capital (w/ CiD)
  • Gold lost from Corruption in all Cities (except the Capital) is added to the Capital's Gold output. This is magnified by Constabularies and Police Stations in the cities (w/CiD)
Begin the New Village Movement
Our cities have industrialised, and our country is more powerful as it has ever been. However, our more rural areas are in great need of development;  and get them to do it themselves?
  • Player must be South Korea
  • Must have entered the Modern Era
  • Must have at least 1 City under 10 Population
  • 1 Magistrate
  • Gold
  • Cities with 10 Population or lower gain a Production boost while building Buildings. The boost is n*5% Production, where n = 11 - Population of City

Assassination Attempt

Mr President, we have caught Kim Jae-kyu after he fled the crime scene. Yes, it appears that the director of the KCIA has attempted to assassinate you, your presidency. What should we do with him?
Option 1: Put the man on trial - I must make a good example for the world to see
  • Lose Gold
  • 50% chance to gain Golden Age Points.
Option 2: Execute the traitor - I will have no such disloyalty in my government!
  • Lose Culture
  • A 10 turn WLtKD begins in the Capital.
Option 3: Forgive him, and set him free
  • A 5 turn WLtKD starts in all cities.
  • Low chance you gain +1 Magistrate
  • High chance that Revolutionary units will spawn around the Capital.
