You want a revolution, get yourself a bored bureaucrat with a refrigerator he can't use. This is positive news for the Norklanders.

I heard a king in Africa wanted to have the latest stuff, so they bought an electric chair.  Then realized they had no electricity.  He used it as a throne instead.  True story, allegedly.

So, it's a bit like the old Soviet soldier using a toilet bowl to wash potatoes?

Yes, and parts of America look like Europe, but they're not.  No sir.  It's America.

I was going to say they were getting ready for a nuclear war.

As such, the government uses refrigerators to reward loyal citizens,

So... Fridge Benefits?

FTA: "Because of the frequency of power outages, few families actually keep food in their refrigerators, unless they have managed to connect their homes to a military or industrial power grid."

Then where do they normally keep their food?

In a jar. Buried in the ground, so it ferments better.

They don't need fridges because Best Korea makes the Best food of course.

See, you don't want to make too much of a good thing, else everyone will want it.

Why, this sounds like a Planned Economy.

Makes sense.  Nobody will think to check the non-functioning but state-sanctioned fridge for the completely functional but illegal books.

In DPRK, reading is cool. Well, would be cool if there was power. And if having books wasn't a crime that could get you and your whole family thrown in the gulag forever.

...so maybe this entire slogan needs work. :(
